Anti-Zune Movement?

I've stumbled across a handful of posts today where bloggers and writers actually urge people to NOT purchase Microsoft's new iPod challenger "Zune." Why? Mainly because it's NOT user-friendly. This article from the Chicago Sun-Times hits it on the head: Andy Ihnatko :: Avoid the loony Zune

There are a number of pro-zune sites out there that would beg to disagree (just search for 'Zune Love'), but even those folks seem to be awash in back-handed compliments for Zune, admitting that Zunes DON'T have podcast-catchers, Zunes DON'T work with Windows Media, Zunes DO NEED A FIRMWARE UPGRADE to get started...and the list goes on...yikes.

Where's the consumer in all of this? About the bottom of the list, it appears.
