I have had access to one remotely for a while, and received one from
Fry's a couple of days ago, though I haven't found time to mess with
it yet.

The remote one I was using was running Fedora Core 5 and had the IBM
SDK installed on it.  That's how I'm going to set mine up.  I have
benchmarked the USB throughput on it with the USRP.  Input is good
(32MB/s), but output is a little slow (28MB/s).  This is consistent
with what we've seen on other PPC's including dual processor G5's.

GNU Radio builds on the PS3, but you've got to be patient.  It took
about 30 minutes, and that was after splitting gnuradio_swig_python
into the 5 pieces.  It's currently not passing "make check".  
I haven't spent any time tracking it down, but it may to that I'm
generating .so's that are 64-bit while python is compiled in 32-bit
