    Triforce is a program which allows you to load Wiiware & Virtual Console from a USB hdd. In order to use this you have to make a nand back of your wii and put it on the hdd.

    Sneek, a NAND emulator that lets you run the entire system on your SD:
    +Unbrickable while running it
    +Better compatibility(I think?)
    +Online Wiiware
    +Run your regular channels(Mii, Weather, News, Wiiware/VC)
    -No CIOS(222/223/249) support, although CIOSCORP works a treat(which is actually nice when your real system doesn't get 'infested' by it!)
    -Slower than regular NAND(depends on your SD card: slow and shitty? Slow speeds.)
    -Doesn't work with all SD cards, but compatibility should be pretty good.
    -No video mode patches, out of region channels might not run as well

    Triiforce, a NAND emulator that lets you run VC/WW off USB/SD/real NAND, but cannot run the entire system(nor is it the goal):
    +Works with USB(Not if you pair it up with SNEEK at the same time though)
    +Works with CIOS(duh)
    +Runs as fast as your real NAND(duh)
    +Has video mode patches to run foreign out of region channels easier
    -Doesn't run ALL channels, but a lot(Wiiware/VC only, and the compatibility for those isn't 100%)
    -Can't take Wiiware online

    I've heard you can run both in tandem/at the same time though, so go for both if you want. If I forgot something, feel free to add to the list.
