I’m a Microsoft guy. MCSD. Stockholder. Assimilated. But since I first read about Linux embedded systems and Linux on non-PC devices some years ago I knew that Microsoft could not touch Linux in this arena. Not now, probably not ever. When you can “hack the kernel” down to the essential core and go from there, you’ve got a platform rock-n-ready for, oh, something like the iPod.
I want my iPod to be open and its file system accessible like any normal file system, and I think this work is very cool. A very “Well done!” to the nerds of the iPodLinux Project.
