Week 1 : The Zune Experience : And In The Beginning...

by M. David Peterson

Update: The first part of "Week 1 : The Zune Experience" (with more to follow later today) is now available @ http://dev.aol.com/blog/mdavidpeterson/2007/02/26/week-1-the-zune-experience

[Original Post]

So as I blogged about last Thursday, I received the Zune I was awarded for being one of the first 10 folks to create and publish a VHD-based instance of their rPath Linux-based project. In the 10 days since, I've realized a couple of things,

1) "WOW! You think maybe you could turn up the quality rating the next time you post a picture of yourself so you don't look like a 14 year going through puberty?" Or is just the angle I'm looking at it again, this time from a different monitor?

Well, regardless, my apologies if I scared you, your children, love ones, or possibly any of your pets due to concerns over catching "Whatever the hell that is on his face! Beth, get some rubbing alcohol! John, *DON'T* touch the screen until we disinfect it!"

Yikes!

So, on to the next item on the list,

2) Zune ROCKS!!!

As made mentioned at the bottom of that same linked post,

I wish I could say that I was smart enough to know what a "VHD-based instance of their rPath Linux-based project" was, but I'm not so I'll just say that I hope you enjoy your Zune. :-)

Hey Jason,


>> I wish I could say that I was smart enough to know what a "VHD-based instance of their rPath Linux-based project" was, but I'm not


Well, if you makes you feel any better, a year ago I had no clue what it was either, so its nothing to do with smarts and instead, exposure.

Oh, I am! e.g. http://www.oreillynet.com/xml/blog/2007/02/hi_im_an_ipod_and_im_a_zune.html :D


Thanks, Jason!
