A different tune

It’s no real surprise that a Microsoft Executive blasted Apple’s iTunes for Windows. The interest comes in the comments that are appearing in blogs.

At one Seattle PI blog, a reader writes:

.. WMA was created by Microsoft so that they did not have to play the standards game and could achieve vendor lock. It is ironic that they would now complain that Apple’s use of a standardized format would be a bad thing…

and another

I have installed itunes onto my Windows PC (and) it really is the best Windows application I have yet to use. The Windows Player was always useless to me, it was always a challenge. While I was loading the itunes I looked at the new operating system for macintosh, Panther, and I am impressed. So where are your comments Seattle windows users? Tell me Apple is bad like you do in the past so often!
