"KDE, a popular Linux desktop environment, developers
are encouraging Pre to abandon trying to work with uncooperative
Apple and use KDE’s Amarok 2 media player instead.
They’re quite serious.
"Bart Cerneels, aka Stecchino, a KDE developer, wrote on his
blog, “We can quickly add support for the Palm Pre, or any
other player, providing there is a way to access the database and
we have documentation of the data-format. We already have iPod and
MTP support and the same system is used to implement audio CD as a
collection. iPhone OS 3.0 is being worked on as well as UMS
(generic USB device) and OBEX (many cellphones).”"
