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.

...Wait, isn't Boxee available for linux boxes?


Yes, but without hardware acceleration for the UI or video playback, which makes a hell of a difference in day-to-day use for a media centre. On top of that, Linux doesn't have drivers for my IR receiver for the bedroom media centre (yes, I am fully aware how incredibly decadent that sounds), and I'm not getting out of bed every time I need to interact with it.
