i just tried (again) to install iTunes under Wine (latest version available,
built from source), and it failed (again). I've seen reports that with a patched
version of Wine it will work, or that if you use an older version of iTunes it
might work. I have never personally seen it work, and I've tried a lot of times.

I use gtkpod with my 5th gen Classic, and I've never had one single problem. Of
course, I cannot access the iTunes music store.
