    Now that native homebrew can be r on the wii using no modification, will it be possible to make a WiiOS like GCOS, and will it be possible to make a GCOS that will run in the homebrew channel and make gamecube homebrew run from the homebrew channel?

    also, is it possible to dump gamecube saves from a GC mem card the wii front SD?

    gamecube games and homebrew are run in gamecube mode. I doubt we'll see an on-the-fly converter, that is also NOT what gcos does. GCOS was a way to boot other discs like homebrew, the wii homebrew channel already lets you run things.

    What we need is a Wii ISO loader using the USB Mass Storage source coding, after expanding it to support EXT2/3 (Not allowing NTFS would keep most of the idiots out, right?)

    Now you're just inferring Windows users are idiots. Funnily enough, I'd say quite the contrary. Unless of course there is third-party support for ext 2/3 on Windows. Then it's okay.

    There is Ext2 support for Windows, you can find it somewhere on the net.
    I was not saying Windows users are idiots, just that the idiots use Windows(But not all windows users are idiots!)

    Aha, that's okay then. [​IMG]
    Any major differences between Ext2/3 and NTFS?
    And yeah, I guess that's fair enough, you wouldn't get someone stupid running Linux to be fair.

    Yeah, Ext2/3 (Open Source) is much easier to support than NTFS (Closed Source). Also Ext3 is a major improvement and also backwards compatibile, over Ext2

    ext3 is Journalled by default
    ext3 supports very large numbers of directories
    ext3 doesn't degrade as quickly as NTFS (fragmentation)

    Oh, and apart from being completely different from NTFS, there aren't major differences, no.
