One thing that would cause me to immediately buy one of their players is if they had the option to use a "mirror a folder" type of set up, where you create a folder on your hard drive, put your music in there and arrange it as you like, and when you connect the player it will mirror the contents of that folder. For me, that would be even better than the "drag and drop" method.
Well, I use Vista, XP, and Ubuntu and what I do is just throw a Breifcase into my music folder. That pretty much does exactly what you are asking for.
