mp3 players

I'm sick and tired of my zen always being out of battery, so I'm looking for a new mp3 plsyer. My requirements are:

  • not an ipod
  • 30g or more
  • randomize over all songs
  • car chargable or a very long battery life
  • (optional) loadable from linux

Anyone have something I should look at?

EDIT: Whee! found http://www.anythingbutipod.com/
EDIT: ARG!! did someone break the internet? suddently my search fu seems to be gone, even when I'm searching for things that I know exist... perhaps it's time to find a new search engine.

more on mp3 players

After doing some research it seems that now is not the time for me to buy an mp3 player. The HD based players are ether too large (120gb) or now play everything else. The flash based players seemt obe plentiful at the 8gb range, but there are a few new ones out at 32gb which are very affordable, but have some UI issues, so once the pack of flash based players gets to 32gb I should be able to find one that I like, is affordable and has a long battery life.
