    ok so:
    that is how the idea happened.
    maybe an ubuntu fork that includes:
    devkitpro
    some random 3ds hackin stuff
    some random wii u hacking stuff
    xxamp for selfhosting.
    some other random stuff.
    removing the need to remove the .trash files.
    and something else... (also porting some hacking tools)
    and java
    and phyton

    (now, i am not saying "hey can someone do this for me cause i am lazy?", i am just proposing an idea that i and @Luglige camed up with

    It seems kind of overkill to create an entire linux distro just for 3ds dev work. Pretty much any linux distro can do it just fine if you install all the necessary stuff.

    yeah, it might seem, but i mean it not only for dev, and in linux someone has to deal with the .trash files for exmple, and a bit of srabilization of it never hurts

    If you were to do this it would be better to use debian as a base.

    if you have a nice RAM you can virtualize it :) (you need 4 gb of ram at least if you want to assign it 2 gb)

    You think I don't understand that mate?

    And ubuntu isn't a "mod" of debian, it's based off the debian Sid/unstable branch. At this point they're essentially two totally different distros in philosophy and function.

    This would be completely awesome!
    But I don't see why we should make a distro just for this

    God, please, no. At least use Debian testing.

    PEBKAC, not GRUB.

    Bullshit.
