iPod Nano

I got a iPod Nano for christmas but it only works with iTunes. The problem is- I am wanting to come over to linux but I don't want to have a $250 hunk of junk. So my question is, can I get iTunes on linux?

no you cant. but you can use other programs that work with your ipod. one of the ones that i've used is called gtkpod. i cant remember, but it might have problems transferring the protected files, e.g the songs that you buy from the itunes music store, but it might not. check the faq on their website (find it by googling gtkpod).
