iTunes Store for Linux


First off, this is not a thread to see if I can get the iTunes program to work on Linux. I know it can "theoretically" be done, but it still doesn't work very well. I also know that GTKPod and YamiPod works very well for connecting to the iPod itself. What I am looking for is a program that runs natively in Linux that will allow me to buy and download music from the iTunes store. I'm not even sure Apple would allow any other program to connect to their store, but then again I'm not an expert.

check this app out.
i have used it to purchase a few songs. ubuntu has a package for it. Still a little buggy, but you can get done most of what you would want i suppose.
hope this helps
