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.

Well, that just shows that in terms of coolness, there are maybe stuff more important than working with the iStuff.

As for the remote... Buy an iPhone, for the (neat) boxee control app (THAT would be decadent)

I already have an iPhone. And that app. But touch screen sucks for remotes, especially when you're lying in bed. Very impractical - can't beat the tactile feedback (=blind use) of a real remote.
