Not only that, but it becomes a hassle, especially with later models of i Pods due to the ever changing database hash checking method that Apple comes up with as a deterrent to you using THEIR hardware with anything but THEIR software.
I got sick of syncing my i Pod and having it work fine, but the next time I added music to my i Pod one of two things would INVARIABLY happen: A) all of my album artwork would disappear, or all of my music would disappear and the i Pod would just say "0 songs".
It had music on it when I got it delivered, but since I DON'T USE ITUNES, I had to reformat it to my Windows 7 PC when I plugged it in and it erased everything, something I was expecting. I synced it to my Winamp and transferred all the music files I have in my library to the Ipod. When all done, I waited for the sync to stop, then waited to disconnect the Ipod from my PC until I had done it "safely" through the eject hardware route and once it was safe to disconnect, I did. I plugged in the Ipod to my PC and opened it as a disc mode.
