    Just what the title says.

    It would be cool.... But it might be impossible. Someone else would know better than I would.

    It is impossible. WINE is not an emulator, it's a compatibility layer... The Wii's processor is not related to PC processors at all... and thus you aren't creating a compatibility layer between just different OS, you'd have to actually emulate the system...


    The closest thing to WINE for Wii is DOSbox, which can currently only play really old dos games full speed.

    Thanx for the reply.

    hats what I had thought, because WINE is x86 and the wii is Power PC (I guess?) I was reading around that there is a Power PC port of WINE called DarWINE. I wonder if that might work.

    Again, there needs to be an x86 emulator involved, and an x86 emulator will be incredibly resource intensive (IE, prohibitive on the Wii's limited hardware. Again see Dosbox)
