"Several reasons exist for my hesitancy, but I'll go into those as this piece unfolds. Here is the rundown for those who like to do things by the numbers: Is an Empeg for me? Why exactly is the software for Linux poor? And finally, what's the overall opinion of the Empeg car mp3 player?"

"The reason I'm mentioning this piece of hardware here on Linux.com is simply because the player itself runs on Linux. Is this player for you? Do you have tons of money to waste? Seriously, I have doubts that I made the right choice."

"I was suckered into the 36 gig model. It will cost you about 2,000 US$, not a price for the faint of heart. What are some of the considerations for deciding if this thing is for you? Do you have a T1 in your home? Or at least a hefty cable modem or DSL? If so, then you've got the first part ready. If you are one of the people still stuck on a modem, and unless you have access to TONS of mp3s, I wouldn't consider this product."
