Run Linux on your Nintendo DS

You read that right - run Linux on a Nintendo DS. The DS Linux development group is nearing an alpha release that will do just that. To run Linux (or other software) on the DS will require use of a passthrough device - a device that basically bypasses the DS operating system and runs programs off of a modifyed GBA cart. The development community came up with a device, called PassMe that fills the bill. Also, another development project is trying to bring Linux to the Sony PSP - Looks like they are looking for developers. See what happens if you give geeks a new toy to play with? They band together to come up with something really cool!
