iTunes User? Apple recommending you do not upgrade to Vista
Classic! Don't buy my competitors OS if you want to use my toy programming tool.

iTunes 7.0.2 may work with Windows Vista on many typical PCs. Apple recommends, however, that customers wait to upgrade Windows until after the next release of iTunes which will be available in the next few weeks. This document will be updated as more information becomes available.

If you are upgrading to Windows Vista or have purchased a new computer with Windows Vista pre-installed, here is some information you may find helpful:
Compatibility with Windows Vista

Apple is preparing to address a number of iTunes compatibility issues in the next release of the software.

Some currently known compatibility issues with iTunes 7.0.2 and earlier versions include:

* iTunes Store purchases may not play when upgrading to Windows Vista from Windows 2000 or XP.
* iPod models with the "Enable Disk Use" option turned off may be unable to update or restore iPod software, and make changes to iPod settings.
* iPod models configured to Auto Sync and have the "Enable Disk Use" option turned off may require being ejected and reconnected to resync.
* Ejecting an iPod from the Windows System Tray using the "Safely Remove Hardware" feature may corrupt your iPod. To always safely eject an iPod, choose Eject iPod from the Controls menu within iTunes.
* Cover Flow animation may be slower than expected.
* Contacts and calendars will not sync with iPod.

Upgrading to Windows Vista

If you are upgrading from Windows XP or 2000 to Windows Vista prior to the next release of iTunes, here are a few steps that will improve your experience when syncing your iPod or playing iTunes Store purchases once upgraded to Windows Vista.

1. Deauthorize all iTunes Store accounts.
2. Enable Disk Use on all iPod models.
3. Uninstall iTunes.
4. Perform a clean install of Windows Vista (Highly recommended but not required).
5. Reinstall the latest version of iTunes.
6. Open iTunes.
7. Choose Authorize Computer from the Store menu in iTunes.

Customers who have upgraded to Windows Vista and are still experiencing issues playing iTunes Store purchases should download and run the iTunes Repair Tool for Vista after re-installing iTunes 7.0.2. Click here for more information about this tool.

I've got a Mac. Screw Vista and the AntiChrist of Computers; Bill Gates.

The Apple Ads on TV tell the truth;

Cool People use Macs.
Dorks use PC's.

I wonder why they built the incompatibility into Vista?

 Quoting: jlazarus



Even Nvidia, worlds number one video chip maker and top motherboard chipset maker, is having problems. For years they have promoted their products with top of class features and performance with worldclass support. Now they are muttering and making up excuses while their customers wait.

If anyone was to come into Vista with a good quality driver it would be Nvidia which shows that no one likely has a very reliable driver for their hardware.

And what do you expect? When you buy the latest OS you become an unpaid beta tester for a product that only runs slower than the one you replaced while providing no new features required by any software on the market.

Wait a year for support, bug fixes, and applications that require the new OS before jumping in.

Like I'm going to listen to that lying bastard Steve "we falsified our board meeting records" Jobs.

Of course they don't want anyone to upgrade to Vista because it makes Mac operating systems look lame by comparison.

Apple's boss Steve Jobs has been questioned by US government investigators about the company's alleged misuse of stock options, which has become the subject of a flurry of litigation. It emerged yesterday that Mr Jobs was interviewed last week by the US Justice Department and the Securities and Exchange Commission. Mr Jobs was granted 7.5m share options in 2001. Apple has since admitted that the options were backdated by two months to make them more valuable - and that the records of company board meetings were falsified. -Guardian Unlimited

look lame by comparison? Mac operating systems are the starting point of which microsoft steals ideas.

Microsoft's own software OS dev guy disclosed in a private memo that mac is better [link to www.computerworld.com]

he is saying if vista did not follow a certain dev path, he would be better off buying a mac. what does that tell you?

so do you want to go with the uncreative also ran or the originator?

If you honestly sat down at a mac and used it, you would see a superior system that is much more thought-out and oh by the way, FUCKING WORKS.
The first step is admitting your an asshole

Microsoft is crap. Real Geeks know that. Linux is what real Geeks use.

Unfortunately, Best Buy and Geek Squad in league with Microsoft sell an inferior operating system that you'll have to call us at the Geek Squad to fix.

Most consumers aren't aware that there are operating systems and office software suites that run better then the junk from Microsoft and don't cost the consumer a single penny.

Walk into Best Buy and talk to the average Geek Squad agent and they are totally ignorant about Linux, Open Office and other open source software. Why are they ignorant? There is no money in it for Best Buy, Geek Squad or Microsoft.

I'm not allowed to mention free open source solutions to customers that will solve their problems for $0 because Geek Squad and Best Buy don't make $ off real technical support.

We take the consumer to the cleaners because they don't want to take a little time to fix problems that they could resolve with minimal research on Google.

I hate Microsoft and I hate Best Buy being in bed with Microsoft. I hate not being able to provide people the best solution because the solution is either inexpensive or free.

Unfortunately, I'm stuck working for them until I can finish my computer science degree.
