iTunes 7.0.2. Works w/ Vista

Apple is suggesting Windows iTunes users delay updating to Windows Vista until they can get an update for iTunes out. iTunes works fine for me on my Vista powered Lenovo – it was working fine on RC1 and it’s still working fine on the Gold bits today. I think this is probably just Apple trying to cast a shadow of doubt on the new operating system from Redmond. If it doesn’t work properly – it’s Apple’s bad – they’ve had plenty of time to prepare for the Vista launch. Apple is good at making their Windows-based customers feel 2nd class – Microsoft should leverage this in their efforts to market the Zune. I’m going to trade my iPod in for a Zune.

According to a company statement provided by Apple spokesman Derick Mains, “Although iTunes 7.0.2 may work with Windows Vista on many typical PCs, Apple is aware of some known compatibility issues and recommends that iTunes customers wait to upgrade to Windows Vista until after the next release of iTunes, which will be available in the next few weeks.” Apple declined further comment. – source

    Not sure how you find it to be Apples bad since Microsoft and Apple have been working together to stomp out these problems that Vista hsd created.
    Anyhow, you may want to hold off on your Zune untill Zune 2.0.
