Is there a good Linux alternative to Windows Mobile?

I just bought an LG Incite and thought it was cool for the first 2 minutes I used it. Than came to find out windows mobile is the biggest head ache ever. So i was wondering if there would be an MID alternative I could put on it. Could any one recommend any thing where I would have use of the phone and text messaging and using AT&Ts 3G network since that is my carrier. It also is a touch screen.

Unlikely. Pray that someone ports Linux or Android to it.

AHH thats what i feard. I would love for androide to be an operating system for cells that you could just install on them, like a linux distro on a computer, catch my drift. And does any body els see this happening some time within the future near or far?
