  1. I don't think there's a lot of point installing OS X programs on Ubuntu. They won't run.
  2. The .DMG files are disk image files. You can mount these like you would an iso image file under linux as a loop-back device. Not something I've played with but from searching is would seem to be as easy as this:

    You would need to do this as root so it would be:

    [cpp]
    sudo mount -t hfs -o loop myImage.dmg /macdisk
    [/cpp]

    So you should be able t read the contents, but as iJack says no Mac application will run under Ubuntu.
  3. Better instructions including how to get it showing for non root users:

    There's several. If you really want to use iTunes however it is reported to run quite well under Wine.

  6. Just to add to Pyroflea's note - that's the Windows version of iTunes, not the Mac one!

    Ah, right! Thank you.

    Is there any difference interface/feature wise between the OSX/Windoze version though? I don't see why there would be.
  8. Little if any difference AFAIK. Just wanted to make it clear to the OP as he started out with the idea of running OS X software on Ubuntu.
