fred - that was just a personal opinion!
:)

perhaps something like a "poll" could give a clue, how many users
think, if rockbox has too many options and if there should be done
work to make things easier for "less experienced and not so
rockbox-geeky people" ?

just my 10 cents....

nothing! :)
but - how many users already complained about rockbox being overcomplicated
firmware ? there is support for all types of languages and there is an
excellent manual,too. and if someone has a problem/question and doesn`t
understand something - he can ask on this list - there is an excellent
community, too.
