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'm running Alpha 3 and last night I plugged my phone in with the sole intent of charging it. I expected it to pop up the usual "you've plugged in a digital camera" box and ask me if I wanted to import my photos, but you could have knocked me down with a feather when I saw I was actually able to manipulate my music. Top stuff!

Also, well done to you, Thom, on your switch. I've recently decided to make Linux my primary platform for work and use Windows just for games and the like as many have. I'd never have the guts to go fully native.
