Not to flame, but are you honestly that ignorant? All players support one type of DRM or another, and only Sony's miserable failure that were Minidisc players (which had all sorts of awesome potential) required it. I'm very happy with my 60GB black iPod, and have no intent to trade it for anything else. Strictly speaking, I wouldn't mind something that I can just squeeze into that little inner condom-pocket thing in my jeans, but I rarely have that much stuff in my pocket so it's a problem. I'd consider it as a secondary around-town player (if the price is right in the US), though I'd honestly prefer something that interfaced with iTunes. Really just because it's so much easier to manage playlists that way than through drag-and-drop.
