I just read this article called Apple 2.0 from the Business 2.0 sight. It says that iTunes and Quicktime are not compatible with Vista. I am currently running Vista with iTunes and Quicktime and I haven’t had to install any work arounds or do anything weird. (Unlike dealing with my video card.)
I have not attempted to hook up my iPod (because I use it only for travel and it’s already configured with another computer) yet and when I installed iTunes it did seem to warn me that there might be an issue here. But this doesn’t mean that iTunes is broken. I’m typing this entry on a computer with Vista Ultimate Edition and running iTunes. I’ve also watched several movie previews on this computer in Quicktime. I especially like the trailer for 300 – I’m really looking forward to that movie.
My only gripe so far is I cannot seem to prevent Quicktime from taking over every video file type. Personally I’d rather use Media Player for some things. Oh well the conflict between players taking over file types from each other is nothing new. I wish they’d knock it off.
