Yeah, I agree. I feel like Microsoft never really gave it a real try though because they never launched fully outside the USA. The USA is very iPod-focused, but other places in the world are less so...and the way they killed off the smaller form factors really sucked. They needed to attack Apple on all fronts, not deliver ONE type of device to the market. The Zune HD is too big/expensive for many people to want to take the gym for instance; they needed a smaller device to attract those buyers.
