    And my Xbox Music (Zune) just got full of bugs (>_<) after 3 seconds the application crashes, I really hope that they'll fix it(, again), but so far all these featuers look really cool, so the moment it's fixed I'll enjoy it more… over my archaic Windows Media Player.

    At the slow pace they are adding required features it will take them years to be on par with the defunct Zune and even the much maligned iTunes. What a pathetic company, they’ll probably scrap it soon and port the android player to it.

      Umm… they’ve been updating the app almost on a monthly basis now. That’s pretty good compared to competitors. I’m sure once Update 1 comes out, it’ll allow them to make bigger changes. It’s getting better with each update. Zune was MILES better, yes. But they’re getting there. At least this new playlist functionality seems much nicer than Zune’s.
