Linux on my iPod

I've managed to successfully install linux on my iPod using Podzilla. After evaluating the system, all it seems I would really use it for is voice recording (up to 96 kHz). It has major trouble playing AAC files, and struggles with mp3 tracks as well. Luckily, it is easy to switch between Apple's standard iPod OS and the Podzilla linux one. I did a test record at 44.1 kHz and the quality was average, but it was distorting my voice. I tried once again, but this time at 96 kHz and the recording was perfectly clear and came pretty close to that of my USB mic and Garageband setup. I will definitely be doing some podcasts on-the-go in the future now that my mobile setup can work so well.
