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.

Ubuntu developers have nothing to do with this. iPhone support was developed without any help of Canonical/Ubuntu. iFuse is an independent project.

I find the set of people who say that things "just work" to be one of the most dangerous to technical computing. Thing about what you are saying: "This functionality was probably pretty complicated to create. I wonder how it works.... Eh. Don't care. Probably magic." This is the danger of things like iPad. We give up a lot when we stop trying to understand how our software works.
