Sony Sued For Removal Of Linux Support From PS3 (IGN)

A class-action lawsuit has been filed against Sony for its removal of the "Other OS" feature from the PlayStation 3.
"The suit, filed on April 27 by Anthony Ventura of California, seeks to redress Sony for the 'intentional disablement of the valuable functionality originally advertised as available' for the Playstation 3. The disabling of Linux support is not only in breach of the sales contract between Sony and its customers, the suit says, but also a deceptive business practice 'perpetrated on millions of unsuspecting customers.'"
