    Thought this would get more replies.. This is big news imo. Are you guys planning on adding Multicore support and Hardware Acceleration in the future?
    Would PCSX run on this? I don't really know much about Linux :P

    Congrats to Quark and rw-rr-0644 Thank You :)

    This is really cool!
    I might try it if this doesn't require compiling because I don't know how to compile stuff

    this is pretty big news why isn't this on the front page, the switch linux tease is already front page, give the wii u a little love it aint dead yet or this wouldn't even exist, still though this pretty sweet.

    Ask the mods or contributors on why it's not front-page material.
