But you have no way to burn an audio-cd from it and thus get rid of drm,
right?

According to the winedb, as of wine 0.9.57, iTunes works ok under wine,
store services included. I haven't tested it myself, since I am not a
fan of iTunes.

Hello.

Sorry for being somewhat Off Topic, but could you guys please tell
me if it's possible to use iTunes with wine-0.9.57 under a ~x86
system? Is it possible to change the store location to something
other than US (as that's required to buy songs, as far as I know)?

Thanks,

Michael



iTunes works pretty well, running on a VM of windows. I run windows XP
with VMWare Workstation and have iTunes installed to sync my iPod,
because no OSS solutions handle m4a very well :-(.

I've burned a copy of CDs from within the VM, but not using iTunes. I
personally don't have very many DRM'd music, like I said I just use it
to transfer m4a (apple lossless which is not DRM'd) files to my iPod.

Oh, that interests me: Which VM enables you to actually burn CDs? I
tried Qemu once and were told at that time that there is no VM with
CD-burning functionality.

Did you actually burn it from within the VM, e.g. having that much
control over your hardware or did you create an image you later burned
with native linux tools?
