I know the folding@home thing couldnt use the background downloading.   Anyone think home will be able to be downloaded like that?

Actually No, he is not talking about F@H he is comparing downloads between F@H and Home, If I understand the question correctly he is asking do you think you can download Home while doing something else, like queued downloading, he just used F@H to show his point, not actually talking about it

Lets make it simple then ... what ever he was asking, the answer is no lol

Seriously though, while in home, it will most likely not support background downloading just like it doesn't when using F@H. What ever downloads you have will pause, and continue after. No official news of this, but I'm betting it will be as so since we will have dinamic HD clips being streamed into our PS3's displayed in the home world tv's, as well as audio, people chatting, and using headsets. (pretty sure that was his question... I think)

Nope, you will have to download it normally, by just waiting, my suggestion is to get some faster service in between now and the release of Home, I understand your pain as I used to be in it as well.

Yes. As a matter of fact, you can download it in the background. You simply have to go to the PlayStation Store and download it, then sit back a do whatever! At the conference, they did say that Home would be a free download from the PS Store, so why wouldn't you be able to download it in the background?

Because the icon for downloading Home will likely be in the Internet menu, not in the PlayStation Store. It's going to be included in a firmware update, not a store update.
