I hate the iTunes way. I hate how iTunes refuses to sync stuff unless you add
it to the library. I hate the way iTunes will not automatically update what
exists in a directory that you have told it holds your collection. Dead
files remain unless you delete them one by one. New files have to be added
manually. Renamed files; same nonsense. Why do people like this program so

That said, you can mimic the itunes random playlists by defining a smart
playlist in amarok for selecting random tunes. You have to manually delete
the existing ipod tunes before replacing them.
You can skip a step by right clicking your defined playlist and selecting "add
to media player".
Admittedly, its a few more steps, but you gain in better collection
maintenance and more control over the shuffle contents.
