Logo Release: The Homebrew Network v7

The Homebrew Network is an application much like the PlayStation Network. But instead of Paid games, it provides free homebrew. With The Homebrew Network, you can do all sorts of things. You can of course download homebrew, you can chat with other users through IRC, you can even get the latest news from straight on your desktop! The Homebrew Network is a lightweight application available for both Windows and Linux. It is updated regularly with new features and homebrew.

The interface is simple, when you start the application, you will get a window which looks something like:
