    When Windows Phone 7 comes out will we finally see a zune software port over to the Mac.  If people remember correctly, Apple at first tried to keep the iPod locked to the Mac until they realized that a Windows port was necessary

    Only because the masses are on Windows. Microsoft has nothing to gain by making the Zune work on Macs: the market is too small (and besides, already owned by the iPod).

     

    This isn't like Office where Microsoft has to provide their implementation otherwise competition might develop (iWork, anyone?).

     

    Microsoft even stopped making WMP for Mac, contracting development of a WMA/WMV player to a third-party.
