Is the iPod the only MP3 player that works out of the box on OS X?

    Well? I would like to get another MP3 player but only if it will work out of the box with iTunes. I don't want to have to change shit all around to make it work.

    I'm pretty sure nothing else will work with itunes because the devices have to identify themselves as ipods (see palm pre for details on apple shutting down workarounds)
