whats the point of changing operating systems?
 
is there any benefit of switching operating systems to something like Windows 7?
one of my friends was saying that I should switch to Windows 7 instead of whatever the OS is on the PS3 already

Well by putting a different OS on your PS3 is basically turns it more into a computer. Attach a keyboard and mouse and you're good to go. Though I'm not sure Windows 7 is possible on the PS3 yet.

Windows is possible on the PlayStation 3, through an emulator on Linux though. But Linux is already pointless on the PlayStation 3 due to poor performance so Windows through an emulator on a slow host operating system is as slow as Windows can get. Plus you have the 10GB limit imposed by Sony on Linux for storage space so unless all you do is use it to surf the Internet (which we can already do) and type up basic documents, you'll run out of storage space anyway.
