Mini, shmini

A mini iPod currently costs $249, compared to $299 for the 15GB regular. I can't imagine why I'd wan't the mini, then.

From Apple's site:

iPod for Windows requires a PC with built-in FireWire or USB 2.0 port or a Windows-certified FireWire or USB 2.0 card and Windows 2000 (Service Pack 4) or Windows XP Home or Professional.

So will it refuse to work on Win2k SP3?

Has anyone gotten it to work with Linux or NetBSD? No hope for using it on my Win98 machine? I don't want to buy XP for an additional $90 just to get the iPod to work.

Maybe this can replace the alarm clock. You can set an iPod to go off at a certain time, I think. And they certainly will ship internationally (heh).
