        iTunes for Linux/BSD

        iTunes is a great multimedia application available ( for Windows and Mac OS X, but I've been expecting a port to Linux/BSD for a long time now (4 years I think) without even having news about it. There was a disscusion on this very same page about Mac OS X being (or not) Unix and whether or not this app should be on Freshmeat... I won't comment on that but...

        I just try another search this morning and I just cannot believe there is still no iTunes for Linux/BSD at this point, considering Apple has commited ( to the Open Source community, iTunes is already available for Windows and its strongest is in fact with multimedia.
