Install and run OS X on an iPod
Authored by: rpcr on Apr 01, '05 11:36:31AM

The whole point of the (joke) article, is that he purports to have installed something *desirable* on an iPod. That would exclude Linux.

Just in case it is still unclear to you, people on this forum have opted to spend the extra cash to run Mac OS X because they know that linux is a distinctly inferior user experience. Yes, you can install Linux on your mp3 player, your toaster and your refrigerator, but unless you're using it as an embedded OS or a server, why would anyone with experience of Mac OS X want to? For a *user* system, linux is just painful and ugly compared to Mac OS X, which is why no one here cares that you can install linux on an iPod.

wow. users like you really give mac users a bad name. i run os x, and i like it, and i also run linux, and i like it too. the only reason os x is as stable as it is is due to the hard work of open source coders who donated their time and effort to making the wonderful BSD layer and the Darwin kernel. try to have a little respect and appreciation for the other os choices people have, it will make you a more complete person.

Ouch. Sounds like someone couldn't make it through the Mandrake install ;-)

You've got some issues... Linux is a fine OS, certainly better than Windows, and to be honest comparable with OS X. OS X has a nicer, more consistent UI but aside from a few rough edges Linux is quite nice.

In any case people do care that they can run Linux on iPods... among other things you can then make decent recordings because you don't have to deal with the crippled-in-software recording features that come with the iPod.
