    We've partnered up with iPhoneLinux, and will be providing support for it as well as their other tools (iBooter). Look for iPhone Linux soon!

    Hehe, well it would make sense if we had a Linux Specific Modding Forum. No reason for it not to be there. Its not like Mac and Windows are the only two things on the world

    This wouldn't work to my knowledge "running windows on iPhone". The goal here is to port over a linux os. To run windows on the iPhone we would need an x86 emulator. Emulators would make the whole point of porting over an os useless, not to mention slow. I think what we are trying to do is rewrite the os to conform to the phones architecture. No windows at this point .

    OMG! Now that is a good idea!

    I couldn't be happier if they did this and still kept some way of using the .app file system.

    Well right now it seems like there is nothing goin on, but it is to port linux over to the iphone, or rather create a totally new distro for it I guess.
