I just noticed Songbird, what seems to be an iTunes like media player in development with the first preview release forecasted for this December. Songbird is being developed on Mozilla’s XULRunner package so I’m thinking that this may be a free/open source package, however, I dont’ see anything on the Songbird website that confirms this.
Of course, even if it is iTunes like, will it be able to sync. my iPod(s). I’m doubting this, but I’d be very happy to have an open alternative to iTunes. I’ll keep an eye on this, but I’m not getting my hopes up yet.
