What would be a good one to buy with a free firmware, or one that could be flashed/Rockboxed?
Also, why do you hate freedom? 😉

Matt – See MJ Ray’s comment for a good flashable player. And I don’t hate freedom. It’s very difficult finding and buying a good hardware player that is Free or Freeable, this one was an impulse purchase in a sale. I saw the word “Ogg” on the box and didn’t think about the firmware. Didn’t RMS insist that Vorbis be BSD anyway?
MJR – Errr I don’t know. I doubt it. The current firmware is fine apart from the ocasional jam. It just mounts as a USB disk and I drag albums on. I’m very happy with it as a player but a bit embarrassed about the closed firmware. This is a learning experience for me.
I didn’t know about the S1MP3 player so thank you for that link.
I wish the FSF or someone would get a Really Really Free Ogg Player shop together. Searching across different information and sales sites has a steep learning curve compared to the Play Ogg site’s links to software players.

Yes I liked the look of the Sansas but I need to save up a bit first for one of those. I upgraded to a 1GB Samsung before christmas in a sale at PC world. Later I found it cheaper online. ;-/
