Adam raises an excellent point. Why reinvent the wheel when they could do a sweet tie up with Apple and have the content available via the tried and tested iTunes network?

How could they even develop something that wasn't Vista compatible let alone OSX compatible? Shameful, and there's no reason for it other than bad planning and development. If the codebase was any good it would be easy to port to any platform.

Did we, the license payers, fund this?
