    Smile Zune Coming To Ubuntu ?

    Here's a weird one for you...

    I was sitting here, doing work on Conky, and I kept hearing a little 'chirp', like a battery was going dead in some device.

    Closest battery-powered device was my Zune -- haven't charged it in a month or two. So, I plugged it into a USB port.

    Boom! It mounted itself. I've never seen that before.

    I kept working on Conky, and noticed Zune was listed in my file manager, so I clicked on it, expecting an error. Hello!?!?!






    I can open all of the folders (expect for null) and display the contents. How weird is that?

    I know 'they' are being real secretive, these days, but has anybody heard/read about Ubuntu supporting Zune

    It could be with all the kernel patches MS has submitted, that they included Zune compatibility as a part of the process.

    Does this only work in rr, or does it work in other releases too?!

    I have zune hd that I haven't bothered using in ages because of its lack of linux compatibility, this is great news!

    EDIT: Just un-dusted my zune and tried it, works in 12.10!

    I just plugged it in and it let me mount it in nautilus. Unfortunately it hardly worked, and was extremely slow/buggy. And if I tried to access it in banshee or clementine it causes massive issues (clementine would immediately leak gigs of memory, banshee would start using like 400% cpu)

    The players go mad to me as well, but I can't make it work with nautilus either. So, are you able to put songs in there?
