What new decent ipod alternatives are out there at the moment. For people who dont want to line the pockets of greedy fruit companies, prefereably one that supports lossless codecs too

If you`ve already got a "fruit machine" rockbox (http://www.rockbox.org/) it.

I've heard good things about Sansa players.

:confused:Some thing that can iterface with ubuntu. Native sound files?
Smaller style Armarock player would be good.

Personally I'm a great fan of cheap anybrand type mp3 players - less than 20/$30 for 4Gb for example. They work simply as USB mass storage devices, give good enough sound quality for me (I mainly use mine when out and about so there's usually traffic noise etc. anyhow) and they're cheap enough that you don't have to worry about losing or breaking them. But I guess if you want lossless codec support you probably want something better quality!

The bad thing about those is that they dont have big storage, if they done one of those say 150gb, id be listening
