I personally find some of the Rockbox themes quite attractive...and I'd venture to say the stock Sansa GUI is perhaps the ugliest and most "unprofessional" looking of any player in the Fuze's market segment.
Thank you!!! Exactly what I try to explain every day.
Rockbox looks good, and things like Pictureflow look great too. Thanks for the replies also.
