Linux is en route for iOS devices

Running a full-fledged operating system on your iPad may just be closer to reality than most would have anticipated. Pretty soon you’ll be able to run Linux OS directly on your iPad.

Actually, according to iDownloadBlog and iJailbreak, the iPhone 4, first gen iPad, and 4th generation iPod touch will all be able to rock that powerful penguin. The install will require a jailbreak, obviously, but should you find yourself wondering what you’re going to do with that iOS device once future iOS versions render it useless, Linux may just offer you up some alternatives.

We’ll keep any eye on this and let you know if we hear anything else on this front.
