I think it could make a big difference between sabayon and other distros, wow, imagine iy you could control compiz, or use the wiimote as a mouse!

Your suggestion may be an interesting one for potential usability. But for many users of Linux distros, I think they don't have a Wii game console. In my case, I use 3 different flavors of Linux and I never intend to buy a console game like the Wii. :|

Well, you only need the wiimote control, not the wii console

OK OK... In this way, any remote controller with programmable buttons and Infrared ray will do the job. The remote must be compatible with the pc and exploitation system. I will like to have the choice of any brand names not only the Wii remote. It's my way of consuming. :wink:

This looks great, I think I may be able to write some algorithm to move the cursor and windows etc with your fingers. But I don't have knowledge of building the hardware part. Maybe there is someone out there who would like to work together with me? It sounds like a nice summer project and we may be rich! Hahaha! Kidding, open source rocks! Anyway, if you want to participate in such a project, just email me and we may talk about the details, ok? Can't wait!

Wow, cant believe this. Do you treat anyone as bad as you are treating me, why dont you contact me first and let me know if I am doing something wrong, and I will fix i instantly, I think is not necessary to erase my posts and treat me like a child, I am 28 years old and am a Medical Doctor, so shame on you.
Oh and Thanks for everything.
