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.[br]

Unfortunately, it's not linux. A couple of sites made a mistake. It's just a demo.

Linux should soon be on it's way now that the first hurdle is over though :D.

Edit: See http://themodgods.com/ for linux info.
