Not all programs can be repackaged. Some won't be stable. Not all features are always able to function.
I would be interested in how stable and functioning MM is within Wine. It is pointless to just edit tags and play on my Mac. I need to be able to transfer my selected MM playlists onto my iPod when connected via USB to my Mac. If that can't happen then I may go the iCloud route. I already have 6 iTunes libraries with music previously organized in MM (4 years ago!) For $25 a year I can selectively stream or sync my collection plus keep it backed up offsite.
Has anyone been using MM within Wine to sync playlists? Or is it just to listen to music?

Will continue to monitor MM for a Mac OS version and wait for a program that organizes and transfers to an iPod better than iTunes. Apple is leaving USB transfer to go to cloud or wireless transfer. Once they drop the USB requirement I am sure we will see some movement into Mac OS programs that categorize and organize extensive libraries, something iTunes was never designed to do.
