After several months of dealing with the poor battery performance, lousy interface, and flaky operation of an Archos Jukebox 6000, Apple's iPod is a breath of fresh air! It's an awesome little music player.
Regarding one of the reviewers complaints:

I get around this problem by creating genre playlists in iTunes, and then when I want to listen to a specific genre of music, I use the appropriate playlist. Works great!
