Yellow Dog Linux? .. What's wrong with Red Hat?

Not sure why .. but Sony decided to go with Yellow Dog Linux as the default Linux install / port for the Playstation 3. From all I have read so far .. everything critical is being added to the standard Linux kernal ... It looks like "Terra Soft" (makers of Yellow Dog distribution?) are in the business of porting applications to the IBM Cell platform (Cell processor is what gives Sony PS3 its God like powers).

Open Platform for Playstation 3 Link

Just ran across Sony's "Open Platform" page for the Playstation 3.
Looks pretty basic. Just a FAQ and manual. But its more than any other gaming console has done for Linux!
