    I tried iPod linux, but it didn't have any games on it that I would play often enough to keep it. And it doesn't use the backlight on my iPod Video so it's hard to play the games sometimes.

    I tried it quite a while ago, but I reverted back to the default OS/firmware/whatever soon after that.
    It didn't offer me anything I needed. All my music is in MP3 format and plays just fine on my iPod.
    I did it just so I could tease a friend of mine who couldn't install linux on one of his Pocket PCs anyway.

    I've used iPod Linux. In fact, I've got Podzilla, floydzilla, and the entire Wikipedia on my iPod right now. The Wikipedia is dead useful to have around.

    I enjoy having gameboy games and Doom and a variety of other smaller games on my iPod, as well as the little tools on it. They keep me amused, and give me something to show off.

    The entire Wikipedia?

    How could you fit all that onto your iPod?

    There's no images or anything. Purely text. Comes out to a bit over a gigabyte.

    Where can I get it and is there an app that updates it or do I need to redownload the whole wikipedia every time I want the latest version?
