Linux on your iPhone - now available!

Almost a year ago I wrote a blog post about an iPhone app I made called Fake Linux - it's a hoax app that makes it look like you've installed Linux on your iPhone, and so spits out boot messages, lets you run commands, and has various in-jokes for Linux users. It's just a bit of fun, but when I tested it on Team LXF everyone thought it was real, so it can't be bad ;)

Anyway, after me making another set of changes - mainly adding a new user interface for when the app starts - Apple has finally approved the app for sale worldwide. So, if you're an iPhone/iPod Touch owner and want to prank your friends, check it out: here's the link to the App Store.

There's got to be some irony

There's got to be some irony in charging for something that pretends to be a free operating system!

Heh.

Does it pop up to tell you that PulseAudio has crashed? Well, maybe that can be for version 2.6.5.*
