Maybe they just need to patch Windows Vista. It says Zune OR Windows needs an update.

I didn't know about Zune until this thread.

Re: Somebody at M$ needs slapped........ HARD
Lol .

Maybe they should ask apple how they managed it with their Ipod.
I won't wonder if the Ipod will still work now with Windows Vista, anybody tried it out yet?

Another question?
I saw the Zune Installation screenshot? Those with the cute asian girl. Is she screaming for pain or is it a shot out of a porn movie?

Here is the shot again

Indeed.

Vista isn't even OUT yet. When it comes out and all the inherent failures show, then you can all bitch about it. Until then, shut your trap. The only people who should be worrying about this is Microsoft, and they have the power to fix it, so no biggie. Not only that, but the website this comes from is called "AppleInsider". The story is probably sensationalized for entertainment for the typical Apple weenie, so it's most likely even less of a big deal than you all make it out to be.

In short, don't think anything you read about Vista will stick unless its something like prices, box art, or supplies. Also, using the term "M$" just makes you come across as an *******.

Re: Somebody at M$ needs slapped........ HARD
I must agree with you Odin,

I wonder if Microsoft does not have a forum of it's own to post all this stuff. And if they really need to get in touch with their customers to hype their product, I think it would be great to put it all under one or two threads. One for "Microsoft" and one for "Windows Vista".

I mean I am more interested if 3DRealms or Apogee will release their latest games for Linux. I am not really interested if they release it for Windows or not. So it is something that does not interest me anymore, if you or others are happy with Windows then it should be your interest, if they release their games for Windows.

I mean there will always be people that are at the same time pleased or pissed with one or another product and I must admit that there will always be people with a different opinion about Microsoft and Windows or the Open Source Comunity and Linux (or all the other operating systems).

I am going a bit tired of bashing Microsoft all the time by now, it shouldn't be worth of my attention I guess. Yes it was fun but hey, it is up to Microsoft to keep their customers and if they are treating them like shit it is up to the customer to decide to stay with their products or use something different.

So please let us end all this Microsoft talk and go back to something like the release of Duke Nukem Forever or if it is really necessary to make Alan Wake a DX10 game.

Whos bashing M$?

I clearly stated that i am looking forward and planned to buy a zune.(i hate the look of the ipod)
However how could a company's biggest pieces of hardware and software not work together?
Which is giving me doubts about their product now.

IMO the amount of money,resources and experience MS has,the zune should work on XP,VISTA and "gulp" even OSX.

If apple can make it happen,MS surly could of threw more money into the project.

Yes, it's been tested and it works. If they blocked iTunes it would only encourage users to move over to the Mac.

By the way does anybody know difference between erotic an pervert?

1. They have the right to not support OSs that are not theirs. Expecting them to do that is like expecting a PlayStation game to work in a GameCube.

2. Actually, the iPod, like most Apple products, is bloated, overpriced, and under-delivers. The only reason why it's popular is because it has penetrated the market so much that everyone thinks that the iPod is the only MP3 player, or at least the only major brand.

3. We're not labeling this as a bash thread because we're "fan-boy", we're labeling it as such because it is a bash thread. What with "self pwnage" and "M$" and "hahaha Vista is lame it doesn't support the mp3 player by its own company despite the fact that Vista is still in beta and in no way will (or can) it be exactly the same on launch".

then what do you use?
please don't say Windows Media Player. I don't know why I don't like it, but I bet it has to do with it being Microsoft related. It has been improved
However, on Linux I like Amarok. I use to use Real Player until I noticed that it eats a lot of resources and has so much extrenuous junk. I will admit, Winamp is pretty good, especially now after all the updates and such, I haven't used it in ages though.

Winamp sucks since Nullsoft is owned by AOL and probably has tons of spyware on it.
FooBar and WMP aren't an option for me since half of my playlist is music modules.
I use XMPlay. \o/

My, like Odin's, music is mostly modules, I use ModPlug (I dont even know if its still being updated anymore :/). But for the stuff that is actual MP3s and such, I dont see whats so bad about media player (Though for some reason I prefer WMP10 to WMP11). Winamp just became to user unfriendly over time I just cant use it any more...

Here's another bizarre image from the Zune install process. Man, what the hell are they smoking in Redmond?

Something to keep in mind: when you use the "$," the likelyhood of someone paying attention to you or taking you seriously drops significantly.

I fail to see what you mean. I think it is a common understanding that Microsoft is very money orientated, considering that it is worth upwards of 50 billion American dollars and is always looking to keep that money. In the gaming community/the power computer user community, M$ is a common way of expressing Microsoft and is accepted, if not required. Another variation is Microshaft, though less common because it requires one to type several more letters.
