I think you are missing he big picture.
I was not attacking you (unless you are a game hacker).
In short, If Sony does nothing we may loose the PSN and access to most games. Its a no brainer.
But I do feel compelled to reply to some points you have made.
1) Thank Hackers, you are kidding right? To cause a problem, then charge a fee from the victim to fix the problem is extortion at best. Just imagine for a moment how cheap Games and Music would be and how fast the Internet would run without the influence of Hackers.
2) I do volunteer work for sick and disadvantaged people, raised over $20,000 for Variety and have helped out at Lifeline.
Just because you use a different operating system don't, and I repeat DON'T call your self a Minority and try to use phrases like "Minority groups are not important to you?". In doing so you have offended me and in my eyes, killed any argument you may have had.
I agree that Sony must do something to retain the developer support, but not at the expense of the consumer rights. They could have just patched the Other OS if it was causing the problem. Regarding your other points:
1) Hackers do not charge fees. Greedy buisnessmen do. Yeah, just imagine how cheap games, music and the internet would be if there were no monopolistic corporates and cartels.
2) Minority groups don't just include sick and disadvantaged people. It could be based on race, gender, age, social background, etc. Just because you worked with some of them doesn't make you understand how they feel. Technically, 1% of PS3 users (is this even correct?) who have Linux is still a minority group and you have offended them.

***** off man, I paid for my playstation, i paid for this feature, and I'll be damned if I'm giving it up without a fight.
In fact, I paid for both the other os feature, and the ability to play blu-ray movies, and games. I have since paid for and bought some PSN games - which I now can't play because I refuse to give up a feature I paid for.
I'm working on my letter to Sony now, I've already lodged a complaint with the ACCC and The Office of Fair Trading, along with plenty others.
Look, you know if it comes down to it, there's more than enough talent outside of sony to gut it and make their own firmware - and the best bit is, that's legal - why? Because they OWN the hardware and no licencing agreement, shrink wrapped eula, or BS TOS can change that.
