Vista & PS3 Don't Mix WellCategory: Operating Systems
Posted: August 5, 2008 10:24AM
Ever want to run Windows Vista on your PS3? Well now you can, thanks to one very patient and persistent PS3 enthusiast. But the question remains...why? With a 25 minute boot time and insane load times for even the most mundane of applications (Notepad took around twelve minutes to load), it's definitely not for everybody...in fact, it's probably not for anybody. Part of the problem may have to do with the fact that you can't actually install Vista directly to the PS3 (or at least nobody has found a way yet). Instead, you have to install Linux and then use emulation to load Vista. With a miniscule amount of RAM compared to modern-day PCs and emulation, the modder couldn't really be suprised at this poor performance though.
