    Default iPhone/iPod Linux Library Hits Version 1.0

    Phoronix: iPhone/iPod Linux Library Hits Version 1.0

    While Apple provides support for the iPod and iPhones on Mac OS X (of course) and even Windows, complete with iTunes support, they provide no such love for those wishing to use their gadgets on Linux. This has led the Linux community to reverse-engineering Apple's USB protocol for the iPod/iPhone devices, developing different hacks, and in some cases even needing to "jail break" the product in order to use it fully under Linux. There's a few different projects around that seek to implement iPhone/iPod support on Linux, but one of them that takes an entirely free software approach and does not depend upon any DRM or proprietary libraries is libimobiledevice.

    F**k apple. Microsoft is more linux-friendly than Apple. And this really says it all.

    Apple fucks developers with the NDA. Apple fucks HTML with H.264. Apple fucks customers with completely locked up stuff. Apple fucks minorities with same locked up stuff. In Sovjet Russia, you fuck Apple.

    And Nokia. It's really sad. I guess they forgot the rules of the W3C.
