I once tried iTunes via Crossover. It wasn't worth it. I couldn't use the music store and it didn't play its DRM protected files. I think there are better media players available (I like amarok).

EDIT: Just my Maybe a newer version works better. Have a try with wine.

Are you looking for any specific capability of iTunes?

i speciffically because i am on a college network and when i am using itunes, we can all listen to each others music. i am also very accustomed to i tunes and find amarok a bit impractical and harder to use.

for some of that you can also try ourTunes, an open-source Java program that can play and download iTunes-shared music on the network
