Apple Being the brains behind Microsoft has made Bill Gates the wealthiest guy in the world. So he can pretty much afford to buy his kids any gadgets they want. However, Apple devices are banned in the Gates’ house. This is surprisingly not a rule set by Bill Gates. Melinda Gates has made it very clear in an interview with The New York Times that she does not allow Apple hardware in the house. If the kids want an iPod they’ll have to settle for a Zune instead.

Vista was fine after SP1.

Itunes for Windows has been total garbage since its creation.

Correction, iTunes on Windows and MacOS X has been garbage since its creation. iTunes is like the Emacs of the media player world.

Apparently the Microsoft Zune media player on Windows is pretty good at doing what it needs to do - if there was ever something that frustrates me the most its iTunes and the lack of a viable alternative to the iPod Classic of a similar size.

Ah, but Emacs is configurable and works.
