Heck, more new what my minidisc player was!!!

    The guy is right. IF Apple had not opened the iPod to Windows, it would not have sold as well. It would never have had the opportunity to expand into the public's eye because 99% of the folks out there are not to going to use a work-around just to transfer files to a machine that does not natively work on their computers.

    Why would Apple not provide a product for majority of consumers, that so evident and obvious, and basic business sense.

    No he stated if windows users never bought iPod product, Apple would have no sales, read his initial comment again.
