ROCKbox and the iPod

iTunes works well enough for my iPhone where the music I want doesn’t change that often, but something that allowed music loading with simple drag and drop would be ideal.  Throw in playback of FLAC and even some hi-res music and the iPod looks really flexible.

I now have my old iPod ‘Classic’ 60GB Photo running ROCKbox.  Even with the choice of loads of themes it’s not as pretty as running the standard iPod software.  However, it works, it sounds good and it’s truly convenient.

ROCKbox cabbie enhanced themeI would be very interested in learning of any competitors to ROCKbox.  Are there any?
