Comprehensive thread here on how to get your ipod working with Ubuntu.
I recently purchased an iPod Nano, and i can confirm that the Feisty Fawn live CD does indeed recognise it - it pops up on the desktop when you plug it in. However, i'm having problems with it being seen by my Dapper Drake laptop. "dmesg" shows that its being recognised at a low level, but Amarok and gtkPod can't see it. I'll probably just upgrade to Feisty anyway.

"All the convenience methods and syntactical sugar that makes Rails such a pleasure for coders ends up being absolutely punishing, performance-wise. Once you hit a certain threshold of traffic, either you need to strip out all the costly neat stuff that Rails does for you (RJS, ActiveRecord, ActiveSupport, etc.) or move the slow parts of your application out of Rails, or both."
