    GC-Linux.org have announced they have Linux running natively on the Wii using the Twilight Hack. They have even released a mini-distro/proof-of-concept.

    The fast development is because of the fact that the wii is almost a gamecube

    True, true, but the differences were enough to cause this 1+ year of homebrew drought.

    It took one year for the Zelda exploit to be found! [​IMG]

    For now, people are just porting the existing gc homebrew to the Wii.. hoping to see some native wii homebrew soon [​IMG]

    What of the Starlet? That's a major difference in the Wii's architecture that took the Zelda exploit team some time to find out. [​IMG]
