Is Apple Warning to Vista Upgraders a Conspiracy?

FireI think the Apple clan are playing with fire in the companies latest posting on their website

“Apple recommends that customers wait to upgrade Windows until after the next release of iTunes which will be available in the next few weeks.”

Let’s look at this from a Consumers perspective. Windows users own iPods and Windows users are upgrading to Vista. Thus they expect products that are actively being supported to run on Vista.

From a consumer perspective this looks like a real stupid move by Apple. While Microsoft has responded quickly to provide a work around, Apple is appears to be playing a political game here in trying to make Microsoft look bad.

What Apple has effectively done is drive a wedge into those of us that are primarily Windows users. It’s not like they did not know the new operating system was coming. www.telegraph.co.uk
