  7. Play photo slide shows
  8. Stream music, movies, and TV shows from a PC elsewhere in my house
  9. Run Linux

Yep, real one-trick pony I've got here.

You have that backwards. PC gaming is the niche market, not consoles.
This is the exact reason PS3 > other consoles, but despite all that it can do, people hate the price, it makes sense, all they want a console for is games, the average joe dont care about bluray, dont care about running linux etc, only people like me care about that stuff.

Onlive though? its a piece of crap, its not going to help PC gaming in the slightest, and instead of needing a PC I own and can play anything on(the hardware is more then 2 years old, and it can still play anything better then consoles), I need an expensive internet connection, and pay a monthly subscription, for 1024x768, plus experience laggy response to input, YAY GO ONLIVE! *cough*diaf*cough*

Shut up now...
Yes, because clearly Crysis, needing a supercomputer, was the best sold PC game of all time....
