Zune is incompatible with Vista but can run Linux?

Well, news is starting to trickle in that people have figured out how you can use a Zune as an external harddisk, plus how this 'squirting' (hooray for marketing gone mental!) of music files can occur without introducing the 3 play/3 day limitation. I particularly liked that last hack. Rename the file prior to sending to .jpg and all limitations are voided. I don't know who the genius was that missed that one, but I'd expect to see how scouring the job market pretty soon.

Not quite, it's a hack.

1 You have to use the Zune as another drive first

2 Then change the .ext of the file to jpg

3 Then drop it into a folder with other real pictures

4 Then send the entire folder to another zune

5 They have to enable it as another drive

6 Copy the file to their computer

7 Rename the .ext

thats alot of steps for a music file

Better ways

1 E-Mail it

2 Thumbdrive

3 Ad Hoc

4 Netcat

Don't forget other better ways (although the .jpg hack is too easy to not have been found by the MS beta testers / designers)

1. newsgroups (alt.binaries.nl - nzb's rock!)

2. google search (intitle:"index of" -inurl:(html | htm | php) +size +description +"last modified" song keywords mp3) <- best used in conjunction with spiderzilla or wget

I'm talking about sharing music not stealing it off the interweb

What's the difference?
