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.

Itunes is in their view crucial and you aren't allowed to live without that bloated piece of spyware.

It is the one reason why I don't have a iPod any more; ignoring the fact that there is a lock in between iTunes and iPod; iTunes on Mac and Windows is just plain horrible; slow, buggy, the ripping is pathetic at best when it comes to handling a cd that might have an ever so slight scratch - hence the reason I used XLD now.

The EU has worked together with mobile phone produces to come up with a standard connector, maybe the EU can come up with a standard and open synchronisation protocol (for music/video and firmware updates) so that one can use what ever application they wish with their device.
