Why not?  What cpu do they have? It shouldn't be difficult to compile  
a kernel that will work on thhem assuming they have a standard cpu  
that is already supported by linux.  They use serial interfaces to  
talk to external devices, so why wouldn't it be possible to make  
linux work on them? Of course, it would have to be built from the  
ground up, but with the amount of tools available, it should  
definitely be possible.  I'd actually buy one if I could put linux on  
it, it may actually be worth something then.
