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).

Regardless of that fact Linux supports more hardware NOW. All those who have complained about Linux so far seem to want Linux to support more hardware NOW. If that is the case they better not hold their breath that Solaris will get there anytime soon. Solaris is going to have issues with hardware for years to come, Stable ABI or not. It would be more likely that some enterprising hacker will write a driver for the hardware you are bitching about than for you to see a Solaris driver written by the manufacturer.
