    Uh, Meikura, the UI on the Zen (or at least the Vision: M I had) IS the iPod interface - Creative SUCCESSFULLY sued Apple for stealing their interface for the iPods.

    I literally held my Vision: M up against my friend's Classic and wow there was no difference! So even though this is obviously an iPod focussed forum (I <3 my new Touch) the Zens are brilliant players and with a great interface, and still have the best sound quality.

    The current standings for each category based on reviews and comparisons are:

    Zens are better than iPods for:
    - Sound quality
    - Screen quality
    - Removeable disk drag-n-drop
    - Lots of codecs supported (MP3, WMA, WMV, XviD, DivX, MPEG)
    - Price (32gb flash-based Zen X-Fi with WiFi is same price as 8gb Touch)

    iPods (mainly Touch) are better for:
    - Extra features beyond mp3 and video in Touch
    - Accessory range
    - Service and support
    - Style and aesthetics

    But the extra features in the Touch make it 'untouchable' (pun intended).

    The Zen Micro does not have the same interface as an iPod. The interface actually has lots of popup windows..etc for menus.. and other options. And it is one of the sh*ttiest devices I've owned. The back cracked with one drop, the screen always flickers a little bit. And a lot of songs aren't compatible with it. They never even got video support on the micro.

    Apple had to pay 100 million dollars for some patent.

    Around the time of the Zen Micro and Zen Touch and specially the Zen Vision M, creatives Mp3 players were the best by far. Creative was creative. They were not perhaps the most popular because there are some people who follow advertising like sheep.
    Nowadays, Creative is very far behind. The Ipod Touch is a very cool device and in my opinion it is the best PMP. It has a lot of shortcoming, but it also has very nice features.
