Microsoft sits on Zune Vista upgrade

Patch exists
Fri Nov 17 2006, 07:22
YESTERDAY we revealed that Microsoft's iPod killing Zune does not work with its new super soaraway operating system Vista.

We wondered why the Zune team did not work with the Vista team so that the machines could work together.

According to a deep throat in the Redmond Vole hill, there is a Vista patch which enables Zune to operate it is just that it has not been made public.

Vista had been running on lots of machines in various Microsoft offices and the patch was developed for those who were testing the Zune to play with.

Microsoft apparently did not see the need for the software patch to ship with the early launch of the Zune because Vista was not available to the sorts of riff-raff who would by the Zune.

In other words we can expect to see a Zune patch for Vista being launched with when the operating system is released to home users in January. µ
