GameCube Linux is a minimal GNU/Linux distribution that can be used on the Nintendo GameCube. It is a port of the Linux operating system kernel and assorted GNU userspace utilities to the GameCube video game console from Nintendo.
As it is a computer with decent RAM and a good CPU, it makes sense to port Linux to this platform. It can be used:
· to use a GameCube as a thin client
· to use a GameCube as a multimedia terminal
· to use a GameCube as a tiny PowerPC-based server
· as a runtime environment for homebrew development
