what the heck ipod touch linux is?
what is it? what does it change ?
There are 3 main operating systems for computers: Mac OS, Windows and Linux.
iPhones / iPod Touches come with a version of Mac OS, someone was able to get WindowsMobile running on an iPhone and another group of developers now have a version of Linux running on the iPhone.
The heck? No one ported WindowsMobile to the iPhone, that was all a hoax. As for linux, it's only in very basic form on the iPhone right now, and by no means any kind of complete operating system, just command line, not even drivers for touch sensitivity.
ok but what will this accomplish? easier to hack?
No. They do this for two reasons: with Linux, you can run any open source software that runs on Linux. It opens a lot of possibilities.
Second: for the fun of it.
so its easier to get apps on there?
I guess if they're linux apps lol
Linux is NOT an os...
It is the kernel.......
WTF does that mean?
i dont see why this is such a breakthrough..you cant navigate screens anything. whats the point?
So is Linux better than Mac OS? And Can't you like have android software or something with linux?
