Hi everyone,

My four year old iPod classic is starting to show it's age and I'm in the market for a new mp3 player. I'm pretty willing to go out of my way to avoid Apple products. I'm thinking of getting a Sony Walkman, but I'm having some problems doing research. Here are the only requirements:

At least 50 GB
Scrobbles with Last.fm under Ubuntu

This shouldn't be a tall order, but Apple owns such an absurd market share that there's very little information about competitors. Is Apple really my only option? I'd hate to break down and get an iPod solely for scrobbling. Any advice?
