Re: [vox] Linux Equivalent to IPod?

It's not a Linux based player, but I've had really good luck getting my Creative Zen X-Fi talking to my Linux box, and transferring music files via Amarok. I also like Amarok for managing podcasts, though I think older versions are better than the newest ones.

I don't like the fact that (the last time I checked) you couldn't download
from ITunes on Linux because they wouldn't give you Linux software.  I know a
lot of Linux users like Apple, but I think Apple sometimes cooperates with
Microsoft to suppress Linux.  So is that a non-Apple Linux device that's like
an IPod?

Thank you.
