No, this has to go through careful moderation with a decent roposal and some
code. SourceForge projects cannot be created as easily as, let us say, a
hosted blog.

You must be looking at the index page. Also see the following:

Does the Wii run Linux?

,----[ Quote ]
| Blogger Kiyoshi Saruwatari claims that Nintendo's upcoming Wii console runs
| on the open source Linux operating system. According to Saruwatari, who
| claims to be a Nintendo insider, the company reduced development costs by
| leveraging open source software and incorporating a Linux kernel into the
| Wii software platform. A wide variety of additional features like web
| browsing, video playback, file management, and emulation all run on
| Nintendo's custom Linux operating system, which uses a proprietary
| interface.


Best wishes,
