Will the next Airport devices be more like a Arch Linux ARM install?

Talk about the project itself, the community, where we are and what we need. Great place to introduce yourself and make friends as well.

It doesn't really matter, iPhone 4/iPad/Apple TV and Linux doesn't feel like it's ever going to happen. There just isn't a will to hack them, even though it would be pretty cool. I doubt anyone would even attempt hacking a $300 ARM router. Too bad because Tomato would run great on it. <3 my ASUS though.
Remember, Arch Linux ARM is completely donation-supported, and is totally awesome.

I guess they are shifting from MIPSel to ARM... wow
Anyway, there's a project about hacking iPhone and iPod touch and installing android on them, but it really isn't for every day use. It does work though... I doubt there will be something for the airport though.

P.S. ASUS is O.K. for the price, Linksys is better :P My RTN-16 can't even run at stock speed reliably, i had to downclock it to 400 MHz, My WRT-610n (v2) (converted to E3000) overclocks to 532 MHz)
