Summer is long over and lots hackers and geeks have spent a lot of time again behind their computers. The results are very interesting at times, like the just released first Linux OS port for the Apple iPhone.
Linux 2.6 kernel has been ported to Apple's iPhone platform, with support for the iPhone and iPhone 3G as well as the first generation iPod touch.
There are still drivers missing, but Linux boots on the iPhone and you get a Linux shell.
This version basically is supposed to kick off the effort to get a complete Linux OS running on the iPhone.
So real geeks will be dual booting their iPhone. Where it will lead and what Apple has to say about that lies in the mysteries of the future.
