    most linux versions can be downloaded for free on the official website.

    not sure about itunes or AOL but I don't think that they will work
    There are 10 types of people in the world those who understand binary and those who dont

    I would give ubuntu a crack it is very simple to learn and the suppport forum is great. Its also only 1 cd for the desktop version.

    http://www.ubuntu.com/download

    amarok is meant to have decent ipod support and you can also run itunes in wine. aol should work as well if you have a look around the forum there are various ways of getting it up and running.

    ok,
    ive downloaded ubuntu and installed it,

    and i have this source code from www.linspire.com/dialersource
    and i have no idea what to do with it.


    also,
    i downloaded wine for ubuntu on windows xp and put it on a zip disk,
    but when i try to install it it says "Error: Dependency is not satisfiable: libartssc0"

    I don't use ubuntu so I can't be 100% sure, but in terminal type sudo apt-get wine, enter the password and that should install it for you.

    As for the itunes, for linux you can use Songbird.

    ps..

    Fedora Core 6 is out on Thursday, you might wanna check that Distro out
