In a recent interview with the Daily Mail, Bill Gates admitted that he won’t buy his kids iPods because he believes that they have a better Windows equivalent – Zune. Zune is a portable media player from Windows similar to iPod, but is developed by Microsoft. Bill Gates also revealed some other interesting facts like he doesn’t care for legacy, and that he likes hard-cover books more, but this fact was the most stunning.
Here’s what Bill says –
“They have the Windows equivalent. They have a Zune music player, which is a great Windows portable player. They are not deprived children.”
As Steve Jobs says, Apple loves that Microsoft have come up with the Zune because after all they are all customers (iPod owners).
