It's both funny and a little bit disturbing how far Apple is willing to go in order to bring down Microsoft's Vista launch. To my mind Apple is [mis]using their MP3 player monopoly to slow down adoption of Windows Vista by releasing support articles stating stuff like,
"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."
Apparently there are incompatibility issues between Windows Vista and iTunes thus you should avoid upgrading to Windows Vista until Apple has released a newer version of the iTunes software. They're absolutely right I personally have witnessed one such incompatibility but it's important to note that it was about 6 months ago and the versions involved were Windows Vista pre beta 1 and iTunes 6 (not even sure Vista was called Vista back then). Also worth of note is that the incompatibility was purely cosmetic as the problem was that the Aero UI would shut off when iTunes was running. Everything else working without a hitch. The Java Runtime Environment version 5 caused a similar thing to happen. No big deal.
Also going as far as releasing software to address the "problem" seems a bit extreme. If such incompatibilities really existed why haven't anyone heard about them yet? Yes Windows Vista hasn't been out for more than a couple of days but that's only counting the general public. Developers and business have had access to Windows Vista for two months and I dare say that we would have heard something by now if a real problem existed.
Why is this funny? Well the Apple community are all up in arms about Microsoft are their evil ways but when it comes to Apple they're a closed minded bunch of drones all going, "Apple is so cool, Apple does no wrong". I have a law suit against Apple that says otherwise, I have a conviction of Apple that says otherwise, and now this.
FUD, pure FUD from wonderful Apple.
If an incompatibility really does exist should you wait with the upgrade to Windows Vista simply because you're iPod might not work? That's a big thing to postpone simply because of an "if" and an MP3 player. It all seems a bit snobby to me.
Let the hate-mail flow :)
