Hi folks, I have a question that doesn't really fit anywhere but this seemed the closest place. Apologies for the huge post but perhaps someone will think this is an interesting question. TL;DR: I'm preparing for the day when I completely move off of Apple computer hardware. I'm looking for a simple solution, and my preference is going 100% Linux. The biggest problem I can foresee on the software side is how to get away from iTunes. I have a 2012 Mac Mini quad that does a pretty good job. It's my file server, my Plex server, and my iTunes server that has 100 playlists from the last ten years. My wife and I have iPhones that sync with the iTunes instance, so something like Synology's iTunes server (which I also have and use as a rsync/Time Machine box) that only does smart playlists and acts as a shared library wouldn't work. Other than Find My iPhone, we don't use iCloud (and we're not interested in iTunes Match). But here's the problem: Apple doesn't make computers for people like me anymore. I like to upgrade my PCs as needed so I can get more value out of them. For example, my wife has a 2009 MacBook Pro 5,5 that still works fine because it's been upgraded to an SSD and is maxed out on 8GB memory. It's been great but I don't think the C2D CPU is going to be viable for more than a couple of years tops. The Mini is good but I'm concerned that Apple's going to drop support for it sooner than I would like. I like macOS, but not enough to either buy a machine with no upgrade options or a super expensive computer that can't perform like other PCs that cost less. So I'd like to consider some options before one (or both) of the machines no longer meets our needs. I am Linux-savvy and have run many distributions over the years. Hackintosh - I don't have the time or the interest Run a Windows VM just for iTunes - ugh, I'd really rather not Run a macOS VM just for iTunes - frowned upon if you're not using Mac hardware, which again I want to get rid of. Also a cat-and-mouse game that I'd like to avoid. Buy an iMac once they finally get refreshed, have my wife Screen Share into it, and sell the Mini - not a terrible solution but it just kicks the can down the road. Also most likely too expensive for what you get. Finally, just do nothing and let it ride as is. Well, sure I could do that but that's not why I'm posting this So has anyone else figured this out? I know you can run a Time Machine server off of Linux that uses netatalk and avahi, but has anyone heard of a Linux iTunes-like replacement that can import playlists and handle iOS sync? I think that's really all I need.
