To iTunes or not to iTunes...

My ipod has been orhpaned since december when our house computer had it's meltdown.

I haven't installed itunes on the new house computer yet. The music is all backed up on the terabyte drive so it's safe, but I'm still on the fence about the next step.

I hate buying music from apple. I love buying mp3s from amazon and ripping from CDs I have bought.

I hate syncing with iTunes. I just want to put music on my music player.

I'm thinking about using Rockbox instead.

Rockbox is replacement software for the software in the ipod. It appeals to the hacker in me because it's got tons of features and is extensible.

And you can copy music from anything onto it.

This might be my project for tonight.

In the process of writing this I think I convinced myself, especially when you can dual boot the ipod.
