Does Ubuntu supports iTunes software?

Asked By 10 points N/A Posted on -


       I am a music lover. I have a wide collection of music in my laptop. I often use my music during parties. Sometimes I become a rookie dj on some events. I also have an Ipod Classic 3rd generation. By any chance, does Ubuntu supports iTunes? I wanted to use Ubuntu OS to give me some attitude when doing my DJ work.

Although Apple mostly purposely obscures the workings of iPods with non Apple software, even it goes to the far end of altering the software again and again to intentionally make it difficult for other Non Apple softwares to be competatnt with it. But LUCKILY Ubuntu works very well with iPods yahoo!!!

 It has some problems with newest generation iPod Touch, iPhone, Nano iPod and any other future generation Apple devices in which where Apple purposefully changed their systems but yours 3rd generation is fine with Ubuntu.

You can use full music management applications (like adding music, syncing, and creating playlists) like Banshee, Amarok or gtkpod. The work pretty consistent with the iPod and will help you to import your music on to you iPod.
