[lug] iPod or MP3?

Last I checked many iPod models could run Linux. Modifying the OS would then let them play ogg music. The hardware is capable of playing ogg format but Apple disables this feature in their player firmware - go figure.
Since almost all of my music is in ogg format this appeared to be the best value for music players.

I have to add a thing: about a year ago, I did a similar research.
My requirements were: I wanted something that either had ogg natively
or supported rockbox. And I didn't want to buy it on ebay (in other
words: I accepted buying it used only from someone here in Boulder and
not from any remote location)
Results: I gave up after lot of effort (and a little contribution to
rockbox for a sansa model which wasn't supported yet - and I believe
still isn't supported)
Please let us know the results of your research (both the model that
you'll buy and the ones that you'll discard - and why)
