Linux on iPod: Just like the name implies, you can run a Linux port on your iPod. It even has screenshots of the Linux bootloader running on the little iPod screen.

“Unfortunately the iPod is considered a ‘closed-platform’ by Apple and technical info is virtually non-existant so this has involved a fair bit of guess work, reverse-engineering and experimentation! But the end result is a Linux kernel (based on the uClinux port) running on the ‘Pod.

Love the little logo of a Penguin jamming on his headphones.
