    Would it be possible to port Xbox homebrew to Wii? I mean applications that more or less generally work for both such as XBMC....


    All (if not most) Xbox homebrew is open-source.

    It would be possible, but xbox doesn't use PowerPC so it'd be easier to port linux/mac apps, I guess?

    One problem would be the APIs. Xbox homebrew mostly uses the official Xbox SDK based on DirectX, which wouldn't easily translate to the Wii. Xbox homebrew using SDL would have a better chance. I don't think the PPC versus Intel issue is a problem as most code is in processor-neutral C/C++ anyway.
