    I thought it was odd that the iPod games weren't compatible with the iPhone, all you would need to do is put the phone in landscape mode and play them... Anyone think this will ever be possible? I was just confused as to why they haven't made them compatible.

    I'm sure they'll come. I'm excited about iPhoneLinux, and when they get S/NES emulators, it will be AWESOME :)

    You're kidding, right?

    Most of the hype around the iPhone is its software. Putting any form of Linux on it will just ruin it :/ I'd like the open platform, but let's be blunt... Linux will yield:

    - Poor UI experience
    - Poor battery life
    - Poor support

    Is that worth trading for an open platform? Ehh :/

    You do realize that a flavor of Linux is built into OS X, right? It's only a matter of time whateverandever!! I'm looking fwd to a shiny little Nestopia icon, too. :)
