    Software sucks! iTunes >.....I have a white Zune though. Just a music player like all the others....However, I can watch a full 2hr movie on battery.

    Its basically like an ipod with shittier navigation/UI, but with the added bonus of pretending you didn't get "suckered" in to buying the mainstream player.

    you can customize it more than the iPod, you can watch full length movies on it without the mattery dieing on you and still ahve battery left to listen to music.

    album art makes it look nice too

    it won't freeze on you.

    the buttons are nice.

    you can find it for super cheap and at 30 gig, 70-90 bucks isnt bad.

    :dunno: i hate itunes.

    I'm happy with my iPood and there software. Roomy has a Zune and loves the new Firmware update, but he says the interface on their "itunes" is madwac right now.

    and that there is no tag editor
    and that it is still buggy with syncing
    and that there is no way to organize by year/genre/date added/play count in browse mode
    and that it doesn't grab album art

    I love my Zune and the new firmware, but the software still sucks. No drag and drop FTL.

    However using encode360 + zune ftmfw.
