I don't know how many of you are aware of this, but the Playstation 3 people have allowed their console to double as a research tool for an online project called Folding@Home. Unfortunately, it's only compatible with that one project, which kind of sucks for me, since I like to jump from project to project online. for those of you who have no idea what I'm talking about, I'm involved in a hobby called Distributed Computing which basically means I volunteer my computer for online projects which involve doing a lot of calculations on relatively small amounts of data, which makes them perfect for distribution online. I was wondering what the processing potential of the Nintendo Wii is. I've heard that, unlike the x-box360 and PS3, that their's a possibility of being able to run a Linux distro on it. I was thinking there might be a project which happens to scream along on Wii hardware. Even if it doesn't scream, it would be nice to be able to take advantage of any power it DOES have. If a 200MHz Tivo can show and record video simultaneously, there's no telling what a Wii could do.
