First of all, i swear i searched for this in the forums b4 posting =p

Second of all, yes it's true!! I stumbled in it when i was checking out DSL. I guess the project is a little old but every1 I asked never heard about it. I think this is awesome because iPod is a classic closed source product (in theory u have to buy apple's iPod, install apple's iTunes, buy apples iPod accessories, yadha yadha yadha) and i just laughed my *** out when i read this. And i saw some screenshots and it's really good. It's under construction (many features still unavailable) but by the looks i think it'll grow:

A screenshot (http://www.ipodlinux.org/Special:Scheme/macosxtiger)

It's worth a visit ;)

The more I know about open source, the more I like it.

You should also look into the DS Linux project. Sure you risk destroying your DS, but once you make a sucessful install then its clear sailing. You can use the internet, e-mail and loads of other things, and finally that stylus is earning its keep because its being used for the on screen keyboard.

Linux > Wind0ze
DS > PSP
therefore,
DS Linux > PSP Win9x

I currently have this (not that theme) but Ipod Linux installed. I use it to watch t.v. on my nano. If you have a ipod try it out be sure to get the qt4 installer.

too bad Nintendo DS Linux makes people able to hack games, which makes me hate it with a passion

oh how i enjoy a game of metroid prime hunters where someone is hiding INSIDE a wall, or is noclipping through the level. Good times.
