That is a link to the Nintendo post, I was surprised by my Wii's glowing disc drive.
All that's left is the Shop and Internet channel. Even the basic friend code and message system is getting sunsetted. I hope they patch the console to remove or allow removal of all of those soon-defunct applications. I think you will still be able to transfer Mii's via Wii Remotes if you had to.
It seems fast for my taste but Nintendo's struggles probably helped.
