Default Zunes For Macs


"I know it sounds crazy but I think Zune should seriously consider rolling out Zune for Mac program. Let me tell you why. First off, a lot of Mac users are tired of the iPod. Most Mac users have probably owned at least 2 iPod’s at this point and would probably be interested in switching over to another player. If for no other reason, just to give it a try. Second, Mac owners like to think they are different. I think Zune could pray on Mac users counter culture sensibilities."

Stefan, I like your spirit, I really do! But I really wonder if there are a lot of Mac users who are tired of the iPod and wanting to jump ship to the Zune. I have to be honest. I just don’t see it happening. Apple market share is only around 7% anyway. Even if a generous 50% of all Mac users wanted a Zune that only accounts for a miniscule part of the market.

So how about this: If Microsoft can do it without committing any resources that are committed to making the Zune better then sure, I’m all for it! But if they need to spend valuable time and energy that could be used on adding features to develop what would almost certainly be a niche market then I’d rather not see it happen. (even if the Zune software DOES look good on that desktop!)
