Zeta: A Refreshing State Of Be-ing
Kelly McNeill writes "There is some misleading reporting going on in technology circles with regard to digital music. It seems that some journalists are still giving Microsoft's DRM kudos for being 'more open' as compared to Apple's. While it's true that Apple requires that you acquire digital music online through the iTunes music store, Apple is the more multi-platform-friendly of the two. Microsoft requires that users of its DRM run Windows while Apple addresses nearly 100% of the desktop operating system market. 'JuggerNaut' submitted the following editorial to osOpinion/osViews, which shows that neither are more open than the other and that Apple is winning this race by simply delivering what consumers want."
