Amazon Kindle 2 Hacked to Run Linux – Kindle linux – Gizmodo

Hacker Jesse Vincent, who’s previously written software to allow PDFs and ePubs to be read on the Kindle, wheedled and cajoled the Kindle 2 into running Ubuntu 9.04. You know, just because.

Vincent called it “a lovely little Linux box” when showing it off at geekfest Foo Camp last weekend. We’re not really sure what the practical applications of a Linux Kindle would be, but it’s an impressive proof of concept for sure.
