    Hello friends!
    I have a question: I'm wanting to run iTunes on my laptop using Ubuntu. I heard that there are "emulators" Windows applications to run on Linux. Is this true? Works? Has anyone used? It is good?
    I hope to answer that question! thank you!

    You'll need vmware or virtualbox and install windows as a client OS under that.

    Why do you need iTunes? If it's just for a Jukebox or Non-iOS iPod you can easily get away with Rythmbox or Banshee

    iTunes does not work under Ubuntu. I've tried this numerous times using WINE. You have to run it under a virtual machine as maflynn said.
