Nope. Your only interface is the iTunes program, which is only
available on Mac OS X and Windows. No other OSes supported. You can
pay to download AAC or ALAC encoded audio files that have been
fingerprinted with your e-mail address and account information (in case
you decide to share them with anyone).
And you're going to have a tougher time sync'ing that to your iPod if
you're not using the real-deal iTunes program.
