Replacing my ipod with my BlackBerry Curve and Linux Mint


So the only reason I've kept Windows on my computer was because of itunes (and I didn't want to use ANY other program...so spare me your "Songbird works well")...

But when I got my blackberry curve; I feel in love with the phone...and since my Linux Mint sees the blackberry as a storage device...I decided to get a 16GB MicroSD card and move all my music to my blackberry...

What program do I use?...none

I like the simplicity of this...

Code:
rsync -av --delete /home/chrsitian/music/ /media/disk/BlackBerry/music/
I like manually organizing my music anyway (I'm so picky...no program will actually do what I want...)

What's cool about this is that I'm not "bound" by one machine...if my laptop goes down...it's fine...my music is on my desktop...if my latop AND desktop go down...it's fine...it's on my phone...if I lose my phone...well I got copies on my desktop AND laptop

So...now I only have to carry one thing around


...and I have no need for windows

Well I have never had to use Windows for my Nano, and I simply couldn't stand trying to navigate through a simple mass storage device of all of my music (the advanced library functions of the iPods are easily their best feature over generic players), but to each his own I suppose.

I found that the ONLY thing I was doing on my ipod...was listen to music...and there are TONS of players on the market that do that just fine...and the music player on the Blackberry Curve is very nice...so i figured that a $50 BB and a $10 (amazon) 8G memory card is cheaper than a $600 Iphone...and it does all I want
