I don't think many care about the other OS feature such that they want to do anything and everything with their device.. there would probably already be a way around it if it wasn't included at launch and for the few years afterwards, but the simple fact is it was

A PROMISED LAUNCH-TIME FEATURE THAT WAS DESIGNED TO ATTRACT CONSUMERS TO PURCHASE A PS3.

You can't advertise a product or a feature of a product, then decide later on that "nah, actually we don't want you to have this capability." We call that false advertising, kids. I believe consumers got refunded in the UK for a portion of their purchase.

I used it instead of a virtual machine to play with linux more often then not. I was upset when they removed it.
