Not that I would recommend the iPod, but AmaroK seems to have good
interaction with it. Modern distributions will mount it as a drive (link to
it from the Desktop automatically sometimes) as long as it is connected. I
suppose the same applies to other MP3/storage devices, but all I saw in my
own eyes was an iPod on Mandriva 2006 and Ubuntu 5.
Hope it helps,
