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.

If you initialize your iPod in OS X the filesystem is HFS+, if done in Windows it is FAT32.


Ah, no. That used to be true. You now get the option in OS X as to whether you use FAT32 or HFS+. In Windows, it's just FAT32.

Thanks, didn't realize they'd added an option in there for that. I take it the update limitation for FAT32 devices in OS X is gone too then? I haven't owned a non-iPhone OS iPod for a while, thought about getting a 5th gen Nano for portability and battery but decided on a Rockbox-ready Sansa Fuze instead for its ogg support.

In the "bad old days" iTunes on a Mac wouldn't even talk to a Windows formatted iPod (and vice versa..) IIRC, they added the feature sometime after the iPod Video got released - at least, by 2008 when I got my MacBook, it all worked fine.
