FWIW, new ipods should be supported and just work if you install the
libgpod updates in updates-testing.  After a few more days, those will
be pushed to the stable updates for F7 and F8.  If you have a newer
ipod, give a try with:

yum --enablerepo=updates-testing update libgpod

If you object to Apple on principle, why would you care if they made
an iTunes for Linux?  I'm much happier using gtkpod (or amarok or
rhythmbox, or some home brewed python scripts using python-gpod) than
I ever would be using iTunes. :)

Many folks like the products from Creative and the Sandisk Sansa
players.  I do happen to be happy with my ipod, which is never touched
by iTunes (unless I'm testing something for compatibility with
libgpod).
