April Fool's Day story clarification

On April 1st ZDNet UK posted a story titled: "Exclusive: Playstation 3 - AMD 2GHz CPU running Linux". This story was a spoof timed to publish on April Fool's day.

The story was one of many such jokes published by various members of UK media, where the April Fool's Day practice is widespread and something of a journalist's tradition.

It has been brought to our attention that a small number of readers may not have correctly understood the nature of the April Fool's Day story. Our intention was to amuse not confuse. We would like to make it clear that the story was intended as a joke and is not true.
