Is it correct that most portable players do not support true gapless playback of Ogg Vorbis?

Because manufacturers did not care about gapless playback, and now there's too much cruft to clean up?

IIRC it only took a few days (a week at the most) for FreeMax to implement gapless Vorbis playback. (They were the first to use MCS Logic's decoder, the first hardware Vorbis decoder.) Sadly, they went out of business AFAIK.

Also, the gapless firmware was an unofficial beta, so getting your hands on one is nigh-impossible.
