I haven't tried running iTunes on the latest version of Crossover Office but
from memory, the best you could hope for was to get it basically up and
running but from there on out, very buggy. You'd probably have more luck
running it on a virtualised Windows box (VM Ware / Virtual Box) but such
environments often have problems with USB devices so synchronising to your
iPod may be difficult. If you absolutely have to have iTunes, I'd imagine a
dual boot is your best option.
As for Linux software, I prefer Banshee.
