asks: "With my birthday just around the corner and my 8 mile runs needing music, I am thinking of asking for a portable mp3 player. What is the Slashdot community's experience with MP3 portables. What has the most support, what should I stay away from. I have been eye-balling the Diamond Rio 600/800 model. Any opinions on the Rio? I want something that works good with Linux/OpenBSD. Thanks for your help."
Ask Slashdot last ran such an article back in April of 2000
, I'm sure bigger and better MP3 players have been made since then. Which of today's players would you all recommend?
