Linux spotted running on an iPad

27 iPad Linux

Everybody loves introducing operating systems to where they don’t belong. Case in point? The countless Android iPhones, Android TouchPad and even the Android HTC HD2. Well, now we’ve got one more device to add to the list: an iPad running Linux. Some developers have managed to get the open source operating system running on Apple’s A4-equippsde iOS devices, which means the iPad, iPhone 4, and the 4th generation iPod Touch.

It wasn’t explained how they managed to pull it off, but they plan to reveal more details in the future. Even though it might be a year or two away before Apple leaves their current iOS devices outdated with newer versions of the operating system, can you imagine the new lease of life you can give them with Linux installed?
