    Anyone here use it? I'm getting a classic soon, and am probably going to put ipod linux on it, but the classic isn't currently supported. Does anyone know if the project is still going on? Their homepage is just blank now.
    Also, to you who do or have used it, what are the games like on it? Doom and NES games for example, are they easy to control?

    I put it on my 5G Video, it worked and the games were cool (Doom), but I took it off after deciding that I just wanted the iPod to be a music player. iPod Linux is a novelty really.

    I think I ran into the same thing, I may have tried it once, but gave up because it was too hard to control.

    The click wheel can only do so much.

    agreed.
    shame though, the screen displayed all of the colours rather nicely.
