anyword on that yet?
is it just going to be like cracking the ipod? although im not planing on getting one, im wondering how much ol' steve had learned in terms of security. i mean if you turn off flash, your kinda calling everyone to try and hack the machine.

I wish I could buy computers for 5$

The iPad is based on an ARM-type (Advanced RISC Machine) processor, so it's right up the path of Android and various Linux flavors. I've already seen one loaded with Windows XP Pro RISC, but it was very limited as the driver base just isn't there for XP.

However, it is a new part, so give it time. Windows 7 or full MacOS on it would actually be pretty useful as a micro tablet.

Here's a bit for adding limited Flash capability through Safari:
