Well wine isn't perfect.  A fair few applications don't work very well 
or not at all, so it's not really a perfect solution.  Dual booting with 
Windows or running Windows in a virtual machine would probably be the 
better solution.

But on the other hand, I guess it is worth mentioning that iTunes works 
on CrossOver (although not owning an iPod, I haven't a clue which 
version works and if it's compatible with the latest iPods and iPhones).
