You can install Linux on it if you want, but it comes with a perfectly
good *nix OS already.  I happily run just about all the software I'd
run on Linux on OSX, albeit generally requiring a configure/make/make
install dance rather than an RPM/deb pre-built binary.  But even
there, Fink is pretty great for installing a lot of Free Software (in
short: it's a derivative of apt-get).

from the bellies of the hungry; books from the hands of the 
uneducated; technology from the underdeveloped; and putting 
advocates of freedom in prisons.  Intellectual property is
to the 21st century what the slave trade was to the 16th.
