I recently started using ubuntu as my main OS.

I have all of my songs on my secondary hard drive and I was wondering if there was a way that I could run iTunes on ubuntu so I could play all of the songs? Or would it be too slow. Is there a iTunes alternative that I could use?

And finially, because I have all my songs set up in my iTunes on Windows XP, if I use a different program to play them in ubuntu, will the program move all of my songs to a different place? Because I dont want to have to re-setup all my songs in iTunes on XP.

Thanks,

Rhythmbox is a good alternative for playing music and it doesn't move any song files. Running iTunes on Ubuntu can be very difficult to setup and the newer versions don't always run properly.
If you are going to transfer songs, look into gtkpod. But for playing music, Rhythmbox is probably your easiest choice (and it's installed by default).

If you want a very good iTunes alternative I would recommend getting banshee. You can get it by searching the Ubuntu Software Center under the applications menu.

Here is the link so you can read up more about it.
