    Does one exist?
    I'm getting sick of waiting for nintendo to release a flash update for the wii browser.
    Although i wouldn't be able to do it, it would seem kinda simple compared to all the other stuff out there.
    Wouldn't you just be able to compile a linux browser or something?

    Is it not possible to have these run directly off of the system menu?
    I'm actually not familiar with any linux version, and wouldn't know how to install it.
    What else do these linux packages allow us to do?
