    Is there any advantages to using Homebrew launcher?
    Seems to me homebrew channel has it all, and its more organized
    any thoughts?

    Course there isn't. Homebrew Launcher is obsolete.

    The wiimote support of HC is better than HL.
    However, I think the menu layout of HL is better than HC because I can have 12 apps per page instead of 4 apps per page.
    Also, HL has elf version (not installer) which can let you launch it via other methods such as TP hack, HC, TCP Load, SD Load, Disc ISO, ... etc.

    If HL improves its wiimote support, I will use it instead of HC.

    Cycling through homebrew on the homebrew channel is a non-issue if you use the plus and minus buttons.

    And frankly, if you have more than three pages of homebrew(12 items), you're stealing too many roms.

    I see that people's opinions come to somewhat of a 50/50 when it comes to HBC and HL [​IMG]

    Behind you! I know you looked!
    I'm confused, why would you use the HL? Surely unless you use a burned disc, you'll have to run the Twilight Hack every time. HBC is a million times better and easier to use imo. Plus, you don't get the new downloadable update system (new update for those who don't know, but still no USB support [​IMG] ).

    I definitely prefer the HBC, but don't write the HL off just yet! You never know what they'll come up with next.

    Homebrew channel is a lot better IMO. It feels like an official channel, you can download updates through the channel itself, and the new beta 8 has rumble when you hover over an icon.
