I beseech you, good people of the Pit! Tell me, is the crappy software for the Zune a big enough headache to warrant not buying it?
My iPod broke again, the same freaking way it did last time. It was in my pocket and the headphones got smashed up against it when I fell. The screen is completely dead. Last time it was massively dented in the back, and had to have a new hard drive.
So I'm thinking it's not worth it to buy another iPod that will just get broken again, and the Zune seems sturdy so I was wondering if i should get one.

Which way I fly is Hell; myself am Hell;
And, in the lowest deep, a lower deep
Still threatening to devour me opens wide,
To which the Hell I suffer seems a Heaven.

Crappy software? I have absolutely no problem with my Zune whatsoever, I love it more than I love my brother. And I constantly sleep on it, or drop it by accident and absolutely nothing bad happens to it. Best money I ever spent on a whim.

I don't know what crappy software you're talking about, but my zune works just fine for me.

I used to find iTunes extremely annoying too

Is it easier to type like this? Am I missing a trick somewhere? I find it much too hard to even think like this, let alone type or read it!

technically if you fell over, its your fault that its broken lol, doesn't mean that the ipod is **** quality. Any mp3 player would break if you fell onto it lol

depends on how much music u have. i have 9000 songs so retitling half of them was a HUGE hassle but a fewer amount doesn't pose very much of a problem.

either way i'd still get the zune. my 80 gig freakin owns

to DinkyDaisy: ....what?
And thank you Filip, I realize that falling over is my own fault lol the thing is tho that the spinning hard drive basically craps out any time you drop the thing on the floor from more than three feet so i want something that won't do that.
And everybody else: I've always heard that the software for the Zune is the most frustrating thing outside the DMV so I was just wary.

I can't tell if you asked if I'm comforting you, or confronting. Or possibly contributing to you.

But pick one of those answers that will piss you off the least.

Um. I can relate to that. Tonight, I ran out of pepsi, and so I ordered a pizza so I wouldn't have to go out to get my soda, and it turns out.. they ran out of Coke. So, I just ordered a pizza for absolutely no reason whatsoever, and I'm really down now.

Do you understand the point of this story, Dinky?

i love my zune (30gb first gen)
the zune itself works great...the software is definatly lacking and not nearly as good as itunes. but the video on it is great. ive got 40 some episodes of the office that i watch during studyhall at school and watching video on the zune is great..definatly beats the ipod. i also like the big album art on the zune and the user interface is just really nice. id say its worth it, especially now that they have the 80gb zune which is even better than the one i have

I've heard of lots of Zune software problems but it works fine for me. If you like the zune better then go for it.

If by "clean" you mean "get a finger right up in there and do a good bit of spelunking" then i guess "at any given opportunity" is my answer.

Yes it is. I have an 80gig Zune and love it. The software blows though. It's a resource hog and just recently deleted all my podcasts. Thankfully they were still on my hd. I heard they are fixing the "must have on harddrive or delete" next firmware update.
