Mac and Linux users not left in MP3 wilderness

One noticeable feature of many of the recent rush of wireless media devices is that the central server software only runs under a MS Windows OS. Slim Devices has a wireless MP3 player and SlimServer software that runs under Mac OS X, Windows and Linux. The server side source code is also available under a Open Source GPL license. The player and server software is also compatible with iTunes.

The SliMP3 MP3 player itself retails for around £200 and it has a bigger brother with wireless connectivity for around £250. A list of UK suppliers can be found here.
