Well appearently Apple did not know Microsoft was releasing a new OS and so now need time to fix their iTunes app.
User of Apple iTunes who upgrade to Windows Vista may encounter significant problems with their iTunes software, according to a statement from the company.
As a result of compatibility issues, Apple is encouraging Windows-based iTunes users to hold off on upgrading to Vista until the new version of the iTunes music software is released “in the next few weeks.”
Some users of iTunes version 7.0.2 may find that they have no problem running iTunes with Microsoft’s (Nasdaq: MSFT) newly released Vista operating system , the company said, but others may encounter significant problems. For example, ejecting an iPod from a computer using Vista’s “safely remove hardware” feature could corrupt the contents of the iPod, the company claimed. Other known problems can include the inability to play music purchased from the iTunes Store, to change iPod settings or to synchronize contacts and calendars with the iPod.
