Linux rocks the iPod World

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.

A long time developer, I was an early adopter of Linux in the mid-90's for a few years until I entered corporate environments and worked with Microsoft technologies like ASP, then .NET. In 2008 I released Sueetie, an Online Community Platform built in .NET. In late 2012 I returned to my Linux roots and locked in on Java development. Much of my work is available on GitHub.
