I disagree that it is rubbish, yes you can put linux on a usb drive based
mp3 player etc but to have it all packaged the way it appears to be with the
Wizby to be is a little different. I am not into hacking but use linux
exclusively and find most mp3 players are not linux based, yes you can access
them but as for the player running on linux, no it's just not as common.
Depending on how it is done, I would am interested in one of these 60g
players when it becomes available.
