Not officially of course, through hacking the console to load on custom software. Here’s a quick video someone made showing it starting up on the system:

It’s not complete yet (it seems to encounter an error when trying to go to the desktop), but still, it’s pretty impressive. Maybe this will mean in future we’ll be able to load iOS or Android on the system, and end up running smartphone apps and 3DS games on the same device!
So what do you think? Are you interested in the idea of running these various operating systems on the 3DS? What would your reaction be if someone say, got Windows 7 or 10 running on a Nintendo system?
