iTunes in Linux

By on August 3, 2004

The WINE configuration gurus over at Codeweavers have announced that their next version of Crossover Office will allow iTunes to play nicely on your Linux box. For those unfamiliar with the product, Crossover Office allows MS Office, Photoshop, and many other Windows programs to run quite nicely on your Linux boxen.

“iTunes has been our No. 1 most requested application,” CodeWeavers CEO Jeremy White said in a statement. “We remain confident that by the end of 2005, the majority of Windows applications will be supported by CrossOver Office. Until then, we’re pleased to be bringing the appeal of iTunes to Linux users through the development of version 3.1.”

That’s quite a feat, given the fact that the audio subsystem in Linux is a little tough to get going in the first place (at least on my machines).
