Chapter 5. Of iPods and PCs > Musicmatch Jukebox

Musicmatch Jukebox

When I sat down to update this book for the latest edition, I had to think long and hard about whether to excise any mention of Musicmatch Jukebox—the Windows software Apple bundled with the iPod before it released iTunes for Windows. After all, iPods now ship with versions of iTunes for both Mac and Windows; Musicmatch Jukebox doesn't provide that all-important connection to the iTunes Music Store; it doesn't support AAC file encoding or playback; it doesn't support the fourth-generation iPod, iPod Photo, or iPod mini; and quite honestly, I find that Musicmatch Jukebox is more difficult to work with than iTunes.

On the other hand, Musicmatch Jukebox still works with the first three generations of iPods; it provides a couple of useful features that iTunes doesn't have; and it works with more flavors of Windows than iTunes does. (Musicmatch Jukebox is compatible with Windows Me, XP, and 2000, whereas iTunes requires you to run Windows XP or 2000.) So why deny those who prefer the Musicmatch Way some helpful advice on how to put it to best use?
