Aha!
M$ took the zens name and changed it, those Bas***** :)
I am also a creative fan, but this Zune sounds pretty neat.

Actually, I'm considering getting a Zen Nano while we're on the subject. The only problem with it is the fact it eats batteries, so I may just get the new iPOD shuffle 1GB (I have the 512 version)

ArsTechnica, as usual, has an excellent review of the Zune. I haven't been paying much attention to the Zune, but it looks like Microsoft learned some tricks well from Apple ;)

Come on Microsoft, pull a "360" next year!

I've always liked the Ars reviews. Rather than trying to impose one opinion on readers, they usually provide enough depth so that readers can form their own judgment in the end.

As they said, I think the Zune has potential - it is just that it's a little "neutered" right now for various reasons, some being typical v1.0 problems (like software installation and sync issues), and others being almost out of Microsoft's hands - the DRM limitations on sharing, for example, were obviously put in place due to pressure from the recording industry. It's not like other manufacturers can get around copyright violations without some form of legal trouble.
