if (everyone loves Windows)
If I would say I love system I would say Linux (and probably Mac OS when I will learn about it a bit) but never (never x100 here) Windows...iPhone would malfunction with Windows onboard...and there is nothing strange in it...Windows is too buggy to be called OS ]: >
Linux Logo mmm...I have some idea maybe I will do it today ^_^[iPhone@SkyNet]# ./iPhone
[iPhone@SKyNet]# make install

Moving on, a specialized version of Windows XP such as Windows XP Embedded, which uses MUCH less resources than Mac OSX :*, or perhaps even Windows XP Tablet PC Edition could be used. It MIGHT work with a good deal of work, but due to overwhelming hostility displayed in this thread, I doubt any developers would want to poll us on such a possibility, which would be a great one as it would open up limitless oppurtunites for different programs to be run on our iPhones/iPod Touches.

Linux already has a great ARM-based setup (Zaurus and the next version of Palm expected to be *nix-based) and since both iPhoneOS/X and Linux are fairly POSIX compliant programs only need recompiling for cross-platform support (which is good). Android itself seems great as the OS seems to be just as potentially powerful as iPhoneOSX and Linux and has a good SDK with it. I'm not sure, but Android might even be POSIX compliant, making it a good choice for developers wanting to make cross-platform programs.
