I'd be really interested to hear about using the player with Windows NT, or Windows Me. The Cowan seems friendlier to older computers than the Creative Zen.

Does the screen of the Zen scratch so easily as some people say in the blogs? Is the sound quality really so good in the Cowan, even if I've compressed my music to 128kbs mp3? Is the Cowan menu improved in the D2?

I have seen the Zen, and it looks pretty, and intuitive. The Flash SD card slot doesn't seem to work with the player though. you have to access it via a separate menu.

I had hoped to use Winamp v5.52 with the player I buy. Anyone any thought on this?
