BusinessWeek columnist Charles Haddad discusses the iPod on Windows™ issue in this week's BYTE OF THE APPLE column.
"The iPod needs to work with any PC out-of-the-box, so PC drivers would have to be built into the iPod. That means, of course, Apple would have to develop them.
The easiest way for Apple to write PC drivers would be in cooperation with Microsoft. Access to Windows code would ensure that Apple's iPod driver would work with just about any PC."
