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 saw this on the DevTeam's blog a few days ago. It never fails to amaze me how crafty Linuxians are. It must have taken a great amount of time and effort to reverse engineer the iphone to run Linux.

Gotta love the devotion of Linux fans to get Linux on everything, Linux has run on lower spec devices so it's not ard to believe, only thing is drivers would be insane to make.
