This is amazing! I held back on buying an 80GB iPod when I found out that
it wasn't supported at the time (back in December 2006). Now that it is, I'm
thinking about getting one... once the kinks are worked out of the port, of
course. :)

Keep up the excellent work, guys! Rockbox has become one of my new
favorite open source projects to watch!
