- I'm a Mac user
- A friend of mine bought an iPod
- She is an Ubuntu user and by no means she wants to go back to Windows
- She doesn't have the money for a Mac
- Frankly, there's no real open source alternative to iTunes ( Genius Mixes anyone ? )
- What's the best strategy for using iTunes on virtualized Windows using VirtualBox
- Is there a way for the iTunes Library not to be stored inside the VB disc but in the Ubuntu disc ?
- VB installed from the repositories doesn't support USB. I've heard that you can download a version that does. Is that true ?
- If so, does VB USB support syncronization of an iPod ?
Functionalities not present in Amarok et al that comprise the full iPod experience:
- Genius mixes ( cloud, AI, collaborative filtering and recomendation )
- iTunes store
- Genius lists
- iPod software update
- Syncronyzation of podcast position
- Syncronyzation of audiobooks position
- iTunes iCloud
- Library consolidation
