So let's focus a little bit on those things, and analyze what they do
better and why. Then we may find out what to do with Rockbox.

That whole "intuitivity" thing is very hard to put your finger on. It
very often boils down to what the user is used to. If a user has had the
iriver firmware for a year, he will probably think that a lot of things
in the iriver firmware are intuitive, while an iPod user has a very
different opinion.

If you can present a concept that works well on all targets and
languages, we are all ears.
