If I'm not mistaken, the iPhone and iTouch are Unix based (as is OS X). Once it's hacked, you can install a bunch of utilities. You can install a terminal, apt-get and stuff like that. However... an actual Linux OS? Probably not.

On a curious note, you can crack WEP on the iPhone now. I thought that was pretty funny.
