Hi.
Is there any way to use iPod on Linux (since iTunes runs only on Windows and Apple Mac)?
Thanks.

Yes, as long as you want the benefits of the iPod rather that specific features of the iTunes application program itself.

The iPod is seen by Linux as a hot-mountable disk device just like w USB thumb drive. One thing that is a little unusual (and annoying) is that when you transfer music to it, the filename of the MP3 file isn't important to it - I think it looks at the descriptive tags inside the MP3 file itself.

A number of popular Linux GUI apps support the iPod.
