AmaroK supports it and it provides a nice front end, which integrates with
your media. AmaroK comes with KDE, which I believe you are using, Gordon. I
also believe that SongBird (Proof of Ceoncept 0.2) should have some
capability as such. iPods are not as hard as people imagine when it comes to
Linux integration. Handhelds likewise. It's only hearsay that's a deterrent.
