Linux users, I need some help

    Anyone know if it's possible to run iTunes on Linux? If so, how the hell do I do it.

    Dual-boot. About the only way. Won't work under Wine.

    No, unfortunately. My daughter runs Ubuntu; we've found just nothing out there that is completely iTunes-compatible. Banshee is as close as it gets, but it can't break the iTunes Store DRM.

    There's a Java-based app called jHymn that could do scrub out the DRM information, but it has problems with any music purchased with iTunes 6.0 or later.

    I just stopped using Ubuntu because of how badly gtkpod and Songbird scragged my iPods.

    Damn ... I only have Ubuntu loaded on my comp and got an iPod for my birthday a couple weeks ago. Unfortunately, I haven't been able to load Windows onto my computer because I'm having trouble with the partitions. Terribly frustrating.
