Call me silly, but it seems to me you ought to be lobbying Apple for
Linux support.

Get a decent Apple-made Linux player, and FreeBSD support via the
linux emulator would *probably* work, no?

While I feel your pain about converting to MP3, having your music held
hostage and restricting your pre-existing legal rights of use seems
like a pretty good motivator...

A junk box out of the closet running flat-out to do the conversion of
AAC to MP3 wouldn't take that long, even for 7 DVD worth, I shouldn't

Some people have a "gift" link here.
Know what I want?
I want you to buy a CD from some starving artist.
Yeah, I get a buck. So?
