HEY! iPods don't suck! I've got a 60 GB Video and it ROCKS! Do you guys have one? Don't ditch it before you try it.
I tried it. And I ditched it. Go with the Creative Zen they're prettier and cheaper, and there's a good alternative for each iPod. Check it out:

Shuffle = zen stone/stone plus (half the price--and the stone plus has a screen.)
Nano = v/v plus (that's the one I have. I think it's about $30 cheaper. *Note* the zen V plus can do video, pictures, and fm radio, and it's still cheaper.)
Video/photo = vision M, W, etc.
there's a REASON the Zens are cheaper...
And there's a REASON the ipods are more expensive. goddamned marketing is what it is
My Zen broke. My iPod still works. Zen failed while the iPod still works, so therefore I'd rather ditch the Zen. Granted, the earphones in the iPod are horrible, but no self respecting music lover would use them anyway.
I had a Zen. True, it WAS cheaper, AND it had more features, but i hated it. Its made of cheap plastic, was butt ugly, and i never used the fm radio, the fm radio recorder, or the voice recorder. iPods have an all-metal design, are are dern sexy. :D Not to say that the Zen was a bad player, i just prefer the iPod quality.
hooray!
Ok, I agree with that NOW. I got an iPod when my Zen just decided to quit working. I loved the Zen, but it was just too fragile. And I hate that I can't use my iPod with Linux -- I had none of these software problems with my Zen!
I use linux with my ipod -- GTKpod.. didn't have to mod out my ipod either. Search the ubuntu forums.

i used rockbox. got doom, courtesy to an instructable. Awesome hack.
Rockbox seems pretty good, but it doesn't work with the new ipods yet. Neither does ipod Linux. So I'm out of luck there.
Yes, I finally got that to work a little while ago. Then one of my friends stole my ipod and replaced all my music with his... meaning I lost a bunch of music, but more importantly, all my careful formatting was undone. Then the computer with GTKpod on it broke. And now the ipod's out of batteries. F***
I don't know much about iPod and Linux...but could you install iPod Linux on your iPod, and then sync it with your Linux PC?
well, I didnt buy my iPod and i like it. I have had no problems with it.

but i guess the life of the earphone will not last long, due to twisting and turning.

I just love tutorials like this - it's not complicated at all, it's something that's actually needed, and most of all, it's cheap! Thanks for your instructable... I'll have to remember this if I ever get an iPod sock!

it's a bit late but i think it's just a bit ironic that theres an iPod commercial on my screen right now. and the zenmp3 is more practical but i still love my iPod.
