    Zune vs iPod

    Which is better, Zune or iPod, i vote for zune. I used to use iPod and my first ipod, a nano, wouldnt work at all when i got it...so i returned it, payed an extra 50 or so bucks and got an ipod video and it worked for maybe two yrs then died randomly. Then i got a zune 120gb and ive now had it for 4yrs! I love the zune!
    Also on a sidenote will the zune software ever be allowed in ubuntu...from what ive read its a no...but the stuff im reading is a few yrs old, did anything change? I have another post on this http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1681109

    Thanks very much and plz vote on the poll.

    iPod, not even close. I dislike Apple, just as much if not more than MS, but the iPod is a superior product. I'm talking about the Touch specifically here, by the way (that's what I have), I think the other iPods like the Nano are a waste since you could get a Sansa or something that IMO is better and is half the cost. It has thousands of apps, Wifi, internet, and all that good stuff, and it unoficially works on Linux too (unlike the Zune which simply doesn't work at all).

    I also had a Touch. But mine was the first generation..and basically broke after a year. And the battery dies SO fast. I actually gave it away when i got my zune. Ive also had horrible Customer Service from apple. And may have all that but they die soo fast and just dont seem to be worth it anymore for me. Btw i had NO idea that the ipod could work on linux at all! Thats one upside to them lol. But ive had a FAR better experience with zune. The Customer Service was, and is really great. And i just love the look and feel of them. The touch is what made me officially hate apple and ipods. How do you get that the zune doesnt work at all btw?

    Much cheaper, works well, slick design, and works perfectly on Linux mostly. The ability to use micro sd cards to increase the memory is nice too. Also, I was just doing the natural thing and choosing the nonexistent third option

    I use my Android phone. Used to have a sansa fuze and an iPod classic. Used the classic maybe 5 times? Then sold it for the sansa, loved the sansa, especially + rockbox, that thing was an awesome player. Pity you can't buy them here, had to get it shipped from over seas. Sold it to my younger brother.

    Never owned a Zune (as you can't buy them here) so didn't vote.

    Love the Sansa. Never used an iPod Touch and never have any intention of doing so, seeing that Apple's Customer Service in India sucks. But I have used a 3G Nano. I still have it and it's lying useless in my room somewhere. I mostly use my S60 device nowadays and my Linux PC to listen to songs.

    Neither.

    Get a Sansa Fuze and install Rockbox.

    The iPod is the best mp3 player on the market by some distance. None of the others even come close.
