Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Xubuntu Well, this is a welcome surprise for those of us waiting for Ubuntu 10.04, the Lucid Lynx. Several users are reporting that their iPod Touches and iPhones (including the 3GS) work in alpha 3 - without tweaking, without jailbreaking, without patching - with Nautilus and Rythmbox.

I don't know about lucid alpha 3, but I have my iPhone 3gs running iPhone OS 3.1.3 and not jailbroken working in Ubuntu Karmic, and it really didn't take much to get it going either. That being said, the usual caveats of Apple devices without iTunes apply of course. No software updates, certain filetypes won't transfer (gtkpod still doesn't support the transfer of video nor audiobooks properly). Still, that's nothing to do with iPhone OS 3 and everything to do with where gtkpod concentrated their focus.
