So, not to siderail the current topic but choopie mentioned windows vista, does anyone know when that comes out? And what are your opinions of it as of now?

I've heard good and bad things. Some use it all the time and say its good, my friend down the hall ran it for a while, hated it, and went back to xp. I guess its a personal preference thing. Google should have launch dates for you

Cool, my laptop says windows vista capable and I have no idea what I should get for christmas so maybe a new OS would be a nice gift. I'll research it some more.

I think the Zune looks pretty awesome: music, photos, video, wifi, a nice display, and *almost* as compact as the iPod.

It's just DRM and the fact that it's made by Microsoft that kills it.

I'd have to say I agree with HV.

Also, the zune software is total hell.

Engadget said there are so many stupid limitations, like you cant listen to the zune while it is plugged in, and you have to replug the zune after a transfer if you want to change somthing, it sucks down way to many cpu cycles, crashes every 3 minutes, uber slow transfer speed, ect

The software takes up ~175 megs of ram, and adds 3 processes to your machine.

Its amazing Apple can write a better program for windows than microsft can.


Hey MPAA, Guess what?

Not yet! Who knows, a future firmware update may make it worth buying.

I wasn't quoting you saying it, I asked a question. Thanks for avoiding it..

I'll go ahead and answer, it can't.

Its ok.

I will trade less-than-spectacular WiFi for far superior (and working mind you) software.

Deal?
