Pre Gets Native Linux Nintendo Emulation
Chalk up another one to the folks behind the Pre dev wiki. Shortly after publishing our first expose into the current state of Pre hacks, details of another big accomplishment have just made their way out.
Original NES Nintendo emulation is now possible if you can brave the developer mode switch and follow a few recompile and configuration instructions. Basically, it works by installing a native Linux version of the FCEUltra NES emulator from within a Debian chroot. Head over to this wiki page for the step by step. You can also check out a quick demo video embed after the break.
Thanks to engadget for the tip.

Interesting stuff, indeed!
I hope that one of the things the people involved in this will work on next is finding a way to lock down the security a little bit more. Hacking your own Pre easily is good. Someone else being able to hack your Pre easily is bad.
How do you launch it?
Palm Pilot 5000->Palm Pilot Professional->Handspring Visor->Handspring Visor Prism->Handspring Visor Neo->Handspring Treo 180->Handspring Treo 270->Palm Treo 600->Tapwave Zodiac 2->Palm Treo 650->Palm Treo 680->Samsung i780->Palm Pre..!?
