  • This is getting a little bit more subjective, but I much prefer the Zune Marketplace. The interface is decorative, has much more pizzazz, and some awesome features such as ‘Mixview’ that let you rapidly see related collections, songs, or other users associated to what you’re playing. Clicking on 1 of those will center on that item, and an additional set of “friends” will come into view, permitting you to navigate around exploring by similar performers, songs, or users. Speaking of users, the Zune “Social” can be excellent fun, letting you discover others with shared preferences and becoming friends with them. You then can listen to a playlist produced based on an combinations of what all your friends are hearing, which can be enjoyable. People worried with privacy are going to be relieved to know you are able to stop the public from seeing your individual listening routines in case you so select.
