So I’ve bought an IPod, eventually as some might say, after fighting at least 4 or 5 years against it. I came to the conclusion to buy one because simply all of my friends have one, and surely they can’t all be blatantly wrong. Some of them are even hardcore nerds. My only condition was to find a mp3 player that has a good Linux support, good in terms of not having to search 1 week or more to finally get this bastard working.
And to be fair, the Ipod was the one, and after almost one week of using it - you can’t beat it. The IPod works out of the box, as the mac people would say, on Linux. Brilliant.
Here’s a quick tutorial on how you get it working on Linux - I’m using Kubuntu Hardy Heron.
