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).

Agreed, 100%. I doubt it's got anything to do with Stallman feeling good, though, as the kernel has binary firmware blobs in certain drivers. He's already said the Linux kernel, as it stands now, does not hold with his ideas of free software. Personally, I think the man's crazy, but that's neither here nor there. So, we can rule Stallman out as a reason for this situation.


Its a shame because on this one point Linus and Stallman are in 100% agreement its only you that doesn't. Seriously you should keep out of these discussions if you don't have even the basic understanding of them.
