iPodLinux is an open source venture into porting Linux onto the iPod. They have successfully ported a customized uClinux kernel to the iPod, and written a simple user interface for it (Podzilla). Many additional Applications have been written, as well as adding many capabilities not found in Apple's firmware. The bootloader allows for you to choose between either iPodLinux or Apple's firmware each time you turn on your iPod.
