They apparently don't indicate these media centers will have the ability to play songs bought and downloaded from iTunes. I wouldn't personally want to buy iTunes downloads because of the ACC copy protection. I know there are pretty easy ways to get around it, but why bother?

That said... the ACC iTunes DRM implementation is one of the least obtrusive. The coming MS version comes with a Osama Bin Laden Spearmint dispenser, a butplug and a manual written in french in the style of Ferdinand Celine. If you sign up for the alpha testing Microsoft will send you a nuclear device for personal use only.. at least that is what the box says.. hmm.. hey.. is that the sound of choppers coming my way?
