Not an iPod, but I bought a Samsung flash player as a gift. When I tried to 
put some music on it I found that it was not mounted as a drive due to using 
the MTP protocol. I thought this was going to cause me problems, but 
eventually discovered that it was supported in Amarok. That works great. The 
player does Ogg Vorbis, which was one reason for getting it. I prefer to buy 
devices that support open standards.
