It's the first Apple device I've purchased but only because it was 16gb touch for only $180 so I figure I could just sell it off once I'm bored with it and make a nice little profit lol.

Yeah I know the 16gb models retail for $400 so it's definitely a good deal. I would have never brought one otherwise.

I think Linux on the touch is still a long ways off sadly.

MPX is made to work with multitouch interfaces.

I'm getting an iPhone some time soon, myself. (I need a new phone and feel I can provide a significant amount of help with getting Linux to run on it, plus I can get it for a good price and it's still a great phone...)

Yeah hardware wise ipod touch/iphone is pretty good compared to everything else out there atm. Just a pity they cripple it by default by locking it down...but it is Apple after all so I guess it's to be expected.

So long as you jailbreak it you should be fine.
I hear that Quake 3 might be ported to it (Jailbroken).

Yeah I've seen the youtube video of it. Looks interested though seems like it would be a pita to control.
