Last year, I purchased an iPod and had a nightmare installing it, probably because I was using Windows 98. I've been trying to learn Linux and am very pleased to find out that if I plug my iPod in, Ubuntu recognizes it just like any other USB drive. A piece of cake.

Of course, that doesn't allow me to manage the music on the drive. For that, I found the appropriate posting at Ubuntu Forums, enabled universal packages in Synaptic and installed gtkpod.

It took a matter of minutes. That is, once I knew what I was doing. I spent quite a bit of time before that reading up on just what was what and seeking out the clearest instructions.

I'm liking this Ubuntu/Linux thing.
