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.

At least in Alpha 3, don't copy anything over to the iPod. I did and now I am restoring iPod back to its factory settings.

You have to do that every two months anyway even if you use iTunes on Windows; it's a known problem with iPods, not with Ubuntu.

And I agree with the earlier poster: It's not Canonical's efforts, it's upstream.

While this news is very welcome to me because my father has an iPhone, I would appreciate it if someone could reverse-engineer a WMV9 encoder so I can use my Walkman's OLED screen to its fullest. Why put in all this time to support an unfriendly product that will break support soon (the iProducts) when you can better support Linux-friendly devices?
