Call me silly, but it seems to me you ought to be lobbying Apple for Linux support. Get a decent Apple-made Linux player, and FreeBSD support via the linux emulator would *probably* work, no? While I feel your pain about converting to MP3, having your music held hostage and restricting your pre-existing legal rights of use seems like a pretty good motivator... A junk box out of the closet running flat-out to do the conversion of AAC to MP3 wouldn't take that long, even for 7 DVD worth, I shouldn't think... -- Some people have a "gift" link here.
