iTunes for Linux

“CodeWeavers, which specializes in software that lets Windows programs run on Linux, said on Monday that it has a new version of its software that adds support for Apple Computer’s iTunes.

The company said CrossOver Office 3.1 adds support for the jukebox and music download software. The version is currently in preview form and is being made available only to existing CrossOver Office customers.”

toothpaste, I was just about to comment that Max OS X is basically a FreeBSD w/ a nice GUI. Both OS X and linux have their advantages. I think that OS X is great for those that don’t want to actually get “under the hood” (whatever that means) of their computer, but would still like the reliability that Unix / Linux offer.

Anyways, back on topic. How does this work in linux (iTunes using Crossover). Would I have to format the iPod to get it to work?

Thanks for any replies.

Everyone stop arguing about Linux and Mac!!!  They both are based on Unix!!!  They are practically (but aren’t) the same.  If you want prettyful eye candy, get a mac.  If you are creating high-end special FX for movies, get a Linux.  Actually, I have Linux, but don’t do the high-end special FX.  Linux is good!  Linux is cool!  Mac is too, tho.  sane people use Linux.  People who haven’t yet discovered the greatness of Mac & Linux use Windows.  Sorry Windows, but compared to these two you definately DO NOT measure up.  Notice how Windows often crashes or freezes.  So, it doesn’t matter if you get a Mac or Linux - they’re both good.  aka better than Windows, which works like crap.

My dad has Linux on his computer and he got iTunes on it.  I think he had previously installed Crossover.  He hasn’t actually bought any songs from iTunes (cheapo!) but the radio and everything else seems to work just fine.  Thusforth I conclude that installing Crossover and then iTunes is worth it.
