    I will do my best to answer it. I upgraded from a 5G 30GB iPod.

    Yes, I said upgraded. (a word subject to opinion)

    You have to be kidding me? You can't use WMP to sync? That is BS.

    So far, yes the firmware & hardware is superior to the iPod IMO.

    Testing it out in XP Pro SP2, using the Zune software. Works good, love the software except I ran into an issue where when I was quick-editing titles and track info it would randomly minimize. It could be MY fault so no hating yet.

    I have yet to test it in any other environment.

    The video conversion experience was good! I have lots of HD (1280x720) videos that I sync'd & it automatically converted them in pretty good time. No hassles.

    I only have 2 albums that are missing copyright info and it won't sync them :( So I am looking for a DRM stripper or a converter. Not sure (help???) what to do.

    When will homebrew software appear, if it exists?

    Just interested, as there are alot of articles about portable stuff like Zunes and people sticking homebrew things on them. At least in UK magazines sometimes.

    I don't want a Zune until it works with WMP11. I don't need, nor want another media player on my computer. I don't want a Zune until they fix all the widespread glitches I am reading about.

    I'll buy Zune G3 in 2009.

    Good call, although I hope next year's version will be super kick ass.

    Well the one thing that got me thinking about this M$ Zune crap is that whole beaming music from one Zune to the other. It still stops me from getting it due to the fact that its M$. DOnt get me wrong M$ does make some half decent items out there but then again im not so sure about it maybe a little more throughout the year of next there will be homebrew that appeals to me. That is the main reason why I got my PSP. We will see how you do M$ Zune we shall see.

    I think the product is superior in several ways. But nothing is perfect the first time out (except me, I came out perfect).
