I know a lot of people have been talking on this list
about Sony's PS3 and ppc linux after the YellowDog
announcement and all...I have also been doing some
reading about Nintendo's new Wii console.
Looks like it has 512mb ram -- USB slots - A DVD --
and is already running some Nintendo customized form
on the ppc based Broadway CPU. It will apparently use
Opera for its web browser...What I cannot seem to
determine from the info available is whether the Linux
it uses is locked down in some form -- like it is on
Tivo or the Linksys WRT Wireless routers. I also have
not been able to find out whether it actually has a
hard drive or not...I know that a usb hd could be
hooked to it...
Does anybody have plans to try fedora ppc on the
Nintendo Wii?? It does appear to be closer to a
generic ppc computer from the specs and from what I
have been able to gather about it...
