Users of Apple Inc.'s iTunes software for Windows PCs who couldn't wait to install Microsoft's new Vista version of the operating system had a rude awakening when they found they couldn't play songs they had bought from the online store. They were warned.
Those who chose to ignore Apple's Jan. 26 caution that "iTunes Store purchases may not play when upgrading to Windows Vista from Windows 2000 or XP" and that they should wait "until after the next release of iTunes which will be available in the next few weeks" won a reprieve on Thursday when Apple released an iTunes patch for Vista.
Apple enthusiasts everywhere must be grinning gleefully with a simpler solution: Get a Mac.
