Hm, interesting. I have an iPod Shuffle 1G (new clipon style) that I
use with gtkPod on Fedora. I don't use iTunes though, since I oppose
DRM on my music. (This situation seems to be changing slowly, but I'd
still rather have the 16b/44k versions on CD from which I can make Ogg
files for my jukebox, and MP3 for my iPod at will.)
Is there someone out there who can talk knowledgeably about iTunes and
how to run it under Linux legally?
