I'd keep an eye on GetDeb.net.

Unfortunately, Apple added some layer of encryption or something that made
it a lot more difficult for third-party developers to support it.

The ipod shows up on the desktop just nicely.

I'd prefer that too. In fact, when I bought my G2 Nano, I wanted to put
Rockbox (http://www.rockbox.org/) on it which would allow me to do just
that. Unfortunately, they also added something to the G2 Nano that made it a
lot of work for the Rockbox developers to get to support it, so it's still
no possible. That was the last time I bought an Apple product :(
