Earlier this week, we covered news that a California PS3 owner, Anthony Ventura, had filed a class action lawsuit against Sony, alleging that the company's decision to terminate the PS3's Linux support via firmware update constituted a false/deceptive marketing practice.

We talked with several project leads on the impact of Sony's decision, and what it means for low-cost supercomputing programs.
