No 3D accelerated graphisc.If the only 3D chip makers are not so open to collaborate to third parties and start-up companies maybe it´s time to back to the 80´s when every computer manufacturer made it´s own gfx chips

The lack of 3D accelerations in this release is not a big issue. The more time passes, the more we can have better (ad hoc) distribution for PS3.

IGN writes: "3D stuff is entirely unsupported at this point. Full support is said to be in the works, however, so we'll see how that goes."

Check out their YDL/PS3 article from a Linux newbee perspective, including some nice OpenOffice.org, Firefox, GIMP, etc screenshots:
