Windows iPod on Mac?

After buying my Windows iPod I started thinking about switching to Apple when I buy a laptop for college. Does anyone know if I can use a Windows iPod (old style) on a Mac? I don't want to have to buy another one (although it would be an excuse to upgrade to 30gb). Thanks.

Yes, it works fine. A windows one can go both ways but a mac one can't. However, you can easily reformat the harddrive into either one desired (ie change the mac to windows or windows to mac).

So then with the new iPods you should be able to initialize on Windows and use it both on a Mac and PC? Is that right? I just bought a 30GB and I have a Mac at home but a PC at work and I had hoped to use it on both.
