– It may sound rather crazy and totally unreal but it is possible to install Ubuntu on iPhone and iPod Touch!

iX — is the new project aimed to make it possible running Ubuntu with xfce4 window manager on iPhone hardware. The main purpose is to use Ubuntu packages/software there. At this stage of development you cannot either make calls or send messages. Meantime you can use wicd (

Despite iX is slow and not so good looking as native iOS I am sure this project has a future. At least before Apple doesn’t know about it and didn’t kicked developer’s butt. But who knows, may be we’ll see uPhone, kuPhone and xuPhone once iX project gain strength…
