I guess you have a greater tolerence to the completely un-user-friendly iTunes than I do. If I want to save 5 episodes of one podcast, and 3 episodes of another, it is a real pain to do that on iTunes. Yes, it can be doen, but it is not easy or logical at all. If I want to store my music, photos, files, etc on one of my NAS or my server...guess what? Uncle Steve says I can't do that on iTunes...at least not if I want ot auto update anything. ALl things considered, I would take the Zune interface over the iTunes interface without question or hesitation. As I said, i don't think either is perfect, but as far as I am concerned, the ease of navigation, logical alyout, etc of the Zune interface is far ahaead of iTunes. Once my iPad is out of warranty, I will jailbreak (root) it and free myself from iTunes.
