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.

It does if I have to keep helping them to work around the limitations of a restricted account when they want to try a piece of software that's shite. Telling them it's shite doesn't help either. And oh yes, Vista... the os where I have to keep instructing them how to connecto Wifi because it forgets every few days and Microsoft hid the option behind a few useless layers. Yes, that's so much better.

You have to tell them that they can't try new software as part of your support. Like I said if they bitch tell them to get a mac.

As for Vista it doesn't forget Wifi settings.

I already did that. It worked on one of them, thank goodness. But telling them they can't try new software? That's what people do. If they aren't allowed to try new things then I really should have them get iPads.

Oh yes it does at least when dealing with certain chipsets. I've not figured out why, since that is supposed to be handled by the OS and should work irrespective of the driver being used, but nevertheless it happens a lot on one particular system I end up dealing with. It's a Broadcom chipset though I can't remember the model off the top of my head.
