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).

WTF are you talking about? The author of the code most certainly had an itch, just because its not your itch doesn't mean his is not valid. Tell me what possible value did Pong have? Someone decided it was their itch and it so happened that others had that itch as well now we have a multi-billion dollar industry out of that itch, that doesn't negate the that fact that the game was developed on what was then a super computer that was supposed to be used for scientific and educational purposes. Who the hell are you to judge someone on how they spend their time. The saying goes scratch YOUR OWN itch, not scratch the other guys itch. To some Linux not running on everything possible under the sun is a problem, an itch if you will.

The nerve of some people, the sense of entitlement displayed nowadays astounds me to no end. You want something as "useful" as Apache code it you damn self. in the meantime I'm going to work on my game which may hold absolutely no interest to anyone but myself. Why? My back is itchy and I'm gonna scratch that bitch to till it bleeds. I could give two shits about Apache.
