IPod on KDE - What is the best app?

Can anyone suggest what application is the best if one wants to use an IPod under Linux? Gtkpod? Kpod?Guipod? I'm running Mandrake 10.1 Official and KDE 3.2.

I use gtkpod, am happy enough that I have not bothered to try any others. I got my iPod (used), with about 2gigs of music and ebooks on it. I thought, probably easiest thing to do is install a Windows partition and install iTunes. First time connected to iTunes it was set by default to sync the iTunes database on my machine. Needless to say, I lost all that was on it. Second try with windows, iPod locked up.

Set up on Linux, installed gtkpod, and did not lose anything. All changes I make don't happen till I tell it to sync. It has never locked up on me under Linux, gtkpod interface is easy for me to understand, I still feel confused by my experience with iTunes, and have no intention to try it again. So I can vouch for gtkpod, great app. Maybe others can tell of experiences with alternate Linux iPod appz.
