    Those idiots at Redmond seem not to understand how to release a product.

    Vista - in "production" for 5 years delayed for 18+ months and now this:

    As if you needed any other reason to NOT buy a Zune

    question is where the delay blame lies. To the end consumer yes it is Microsoft but I willing to bet the reason behind it is the manufacture Microsoft hired to build them is where the problem lies and some how I think they will be paying Microsoft a lot of money for screwing up.

    Of course the problem could keep going down the line to one of the suppliers for the manufacture who making the zunes but does not matter since the manufacture is resposible to Mincrosoft to get the product out on time.

    Now reason I believe it is the manufacture is they are saying production schedule is behind which means R&D was done in plenty of time.

    The question is who do you believe? M$ who is painting this like the Zune is Soooo popular that we can't get enough in retailers hands, or what everyone else is saying which is M$ failed to ship more than a small hand full of the things.
