I’ll tune your Windows

Apple just released iTunes for Windows. This will hopefully be quite cool. Am downloading it as I’m typing. Only available for Windows 2K/XP, which is quite all right, as there is absolutely no reason to use any other version of Windows if you want to maintain some semblance of sanity.

Hopefully this will provide a nice boost in the iTunes Music Store (ITMS) revenue stream, as well as get the Apple logo a little bit further implanted into the heads of our friends on the Windows side.
