    I have an iPod touch and I was going through new apps to download and one I downloaded was was an app from fanboy that had like 5 different apps within itself. Now one of the apps was called Linux and I am not sure why I would want Linux on myipod touch so I didn't click it. Regardless, I am a nub when it comes to this crap so someone please school me on this whole situation.

    Thanks.

    If its the same app that im thinking of, its just a application that pretends to be installing Linux so you can "fool your mates"

    I think that was a fake Linux installer, Linux has not yet been ported to the iPhone....
    well linux is an open source os that has been ported to the computer to an iPod, I even heard of Linux on a microwave!(youtube it...)

    Linux installer is an app by onefan that pretends that you are installing Linux to fool your friends. It doesn't install anything so you can run it without any problem.
