Loading up the iPod

This is going to be a short one, because Sarah and I are on our way out the door. We're taking the weekend to go to the lilac festival. To that end, I finally loaded up basically all the music we have on her iPod.

Is it just me, or are the iPod apps available on Linux a little lacking. I like the iPod integration in Amarok, but there doesn't seem to be a simple and obvious way to say, "Just dump this 10GB directory onto the iPod" or "dump the new files in this 10GB directory onto the iPod."

GTKPod, on the other hand, makes it relatively easy to dump large directories onto the iPod. However, have you seen the user interface? I found it more than a little confusing. For instance, why is the "save" button the one that transfers the files? That just doesn't make sense to me. And neither does the rest of it, frankly.

I guess I'm going to have to do some more research on this iPod stuff at some point. But not today.
