Apple iTunes for Windows launched yesterday with exactly the same interface and functionality as on the Mac. It can runs on Windows XP and Windows 2000.
The software includes jukebox functions, MP3 encoding options, CD burning, iPod integration, and music sharing among several computers even if you don't use the iToons store. Steve Jobs compared it with Microsoft and MusicMatch offerings.
Full integration with Rendezvous, sharing songs with a Mac and/or PC's on a network including streaming of songs. iTMS built directly into iTunes for Windows.
Same store, same functionality. "Best" personal Content rights are the same (own music, unlimited CD burning, burn unchanged playlists up to 10 times, etc.
It sounds good but will teens be willing to pay $.99 per song, or an average of $9 per album?
I'm for sure going to try it out. If it does all it says I'll be buying an iPod sooner than later.

I download it the other day, and I must admit I really like it a lot. Im a Computer Science student so liking Mac stuff usually isn't considered cool. But I really respect the compnay a lot and like this product. I knew that Windows Media Player can do a lot of the stuff like make your playlist let you rate songs and whatnot, but this is so much better, and with being able to stream music over the network is great, I now have thousands more songs to listen to. And being a college student and not having a lot of money 99 cents a song and about 9 dollars per albums isnt that bad. I still download some music for free but I like how Mac made a great product that is also legit.
