From a business standpoint (especially now), Sony will most likely opt to pay out a settlement rather than reinstate OtherOS functionality. I personally can't see them giving that feature back (which would be a public admission of guilt, and make their image appear worse than it already does). Their MO is to keep things hush and pay a little legal expense rather than make right on their wrongdoing. Owners of PS3's which were previously capable of OtherOS may get a little compensation out of this judgement, but I'd bet on the fact that aside from AsbestOS (and similar), you'll never see OtherOS return to the PS3 (at least not by Sony that is).
