I recall in the past this being available somewhere, perhaps ThinkPenguin, but I am unable to locate it. Any ideas? I remember it looking similar to an iPod but was FOSS.

DRM-free? That's super common, literally any other portable media player that isn't an iPod will fit the bill. But if you actually mean something powered by libre software, that's much harder and the closest thing to that I can think of is the OpenPandora (although it wouldn't surprise me if there's something better; I haven't really looked). (The media player previously sold by Think Penguin was not an example, it was just a standard media player that worked with GNU/Linux computers.)

I am the happy owner of a Sansa Clip Zip, where I (very easily) installed RockBox. I bought it in an US shop ("Best Buy", if I remember well) in 2014. You can still buy it, apparently: http://www.ebay.com/itm/272498837945

Flash Rockbox on a Sandisk player.

I successfully use an iPod Video 5th Gen (80Gb) with rockbox. It works really well and holds all of my music.

I am very satisfied with Rockbox! I run it on an iPod Classic 6th Generation 160GB.

I also have a 6th gen that I need to recondition and install rockbox on. I'm glad to hear that you have had success with that version of the iPod because I was not 100% sure I'd get that one working with Rockbox.
