Well I am still downloading (or attempting to, not looking so good) Vista from MSDN, but I am not sure how I am going to use it.  You see (and have probably already heard) that the Vista team is on one side of the campus and Zune team is on another.  The distance is so far that they were unable to communicate and test products together.  So the Zune doesn't work on Vista.  Now since Business Customers don't use Zunes, they will release an update just in time for the Vista Home release in January. 

So I am left with a dilemma.  I can:

  1. Install Vista and resurrect my Dell Inspiron 8600 for my Zune and Zune only (that thing sucks)
  2. Leave XP and wait for a Zune update on my Toshiba. 

I will probably choose 1, but I am building the Dell box first to make sure I can move the Zune Marketplace music to that machine and get the account working over there first, cause I really don't want to be force to download all that music again.

Now if MSDN can get their license generation service back up, I am good to go with installing Vista.

Why don't you just get an iPod?

I just setup another partition and installed Vista to it so I can go back to XP when needed.
