Linux Even though there are a lot of happy people using Apple's iPhone very happily, there's also a group of people who are not so happy, most likely because of Apple's rather strict policies regarding applications and developers. While most of these people would just jailbreak the thing, some take it a step further - by installing another operating system. Yes, Linux now runs on the iPhone (1st gen/2nd gen, and the 1st gen iPod Touch).

I know there is still a long way to go, but I home this opens the way to porting Android. I might hang on the my iPod Touch a bit longer and see where this goes.

Google has only allowed their SDK to be released for developers to create apps, not the OS. Though I agree I would prefer the option of Google's Android OS compared to running a Linux distro on it.
