    Actually, devKitPro is the freeware alternative to warez. It's still on sourceforge, might want to get it while you can.

    Nothing to worry about. To my knowledge WinterMute is just redirecting traffic to http://83.138.166.114/

    Let's not get into a frenzy.

    Oh, I don't know, it just provides a screenshot that, indeed, that's not a made-up website?

    Besides, devkitPro is a very respected toolchain in the scene. Nobody's ever doubted their legitimacy. They don't have a reason to pull a prank like this unless they're begging for a fork.

    Respected toolchain or not, some people just want to have fun occasionally. Not every toolchain dev is anti-fun.

    You can check the IP yourself if you want, it should be exactly the same as the one i listed, im pretty sure that IP is a fake site, either that or its real and hes just redirecting it anyway, we will never know. Pretty sure he outright said it too.

    This may come as a surprise to you, but not every conspiracy theory, such as yours, happens to be necessarily true.

    all purpose tool-chain kit for Nintendo products. Not all, but a good handful.

    It was a thing (don't know the termanology) to help a person build things for 3ds,wii,wii u,gamecube, DS stuff like that.

    Also, it's still on fucking sourceforge so.....

    I'm confused... So was Smealum busted? Or was that just a horribly timed "joke"?
