So it had linux support. However all the software you normally run on a ps3 (games etc) aren't running on linux but on a Sony proprietary OS which exposes C APIs to developpers. Linux was running virtualized on this OS in a way
The PS3 OS is based on FreeBSD and other software, including some GNU software. The Linux option was actual Linux on the actual hardware; however, to boot it, you had to chainload from the firmware. When the firmware was updated, the dual-boot capability was removed.

On June 15, 2011, George Talusan, a Kobo developer Intern posted on this thread a link to a Linux build of Kobo Desktop: http://dl.dropbox.com/u/2183775/kobo-desktop.deb . This URL has been mentioned in a number of messages on this thread since. However, when I try to download it now, I get a 404 Not Found error. Does anyone know what happened to it? Is there a newer Linux build of Kobo Desktop anywhere?
