This works on Linux, and you can play ALL GAMES generation, from Collecovision till Playstaion 1 (can also play computers like Amstrad, Amiga, Atari, DOS, etc...).
You can also download some free Apps. as: Movie viewer, music reader, TV Out, PDF Viewer, go on internet, play with controller.... And many more
Open source means that you change all programs by yourself (or downloading legal contet on Caanoo's comunity), no need to crack that shit
This is like a mini computer working on LINUX, and your hard disk is a SD card.
You have to download console's emulators (many free packs and starter kits on worlwide community), just put them in the right folder named "game", after this you download your games as ROM (one game on super Nintendo less than 2 megabytes) and put them in the ROM folder of the right emulator.
Now you ready to chose your game through the Caanoo's menu.
A baby can do it ^^
So can the G-18 do everything the Caanoo do also? Films etc.

You might have trouble for a numbers of reasons. I know with emulation, the more recent the console (e.g ps1, ps2), the harder it is to emulate and different emulators work better with certain games. But older consoles like the SNES like you can just use one emulator and have nearly no problems with any of the games.
Yep, with PSX emulator it's not easy to find the right parameters.
For snes, some games are not working (specially games using many Mode 7 and super FX2):
-Starfox 1 & 2
-Kirby's Dream Land 3
-Kirby's Fun Pak
-Hoshi no Kirby Super Deluxe
Hope not more to come ^^
About the Yinlips G-18: some emulator (N64, Nintendo DS, PS1, CPS2) are for sell !!!
For N64 emulator, it's not perfect but works very well:
