Linux on the Nintendo DS

DS Linux

Using a passthrough and some homebrew demos, someone has Linux running on Nintendo's new dual-screen portable gaming unit. It appears to use some external hardware, which makes the whole thing currently not-so-portable, but the idea is that all the hardware could be put on a single cartridge. Once in there, a portable dual-screen Linux system with touch-screen input and WiFi could be pretty darn useful. And fun. And only $149.


[Correction: That's not Linux running on there, actually. Just a software demo.]
