whats so crippled about the wireless?
1. You can't transfer wirelessly from PC to zune.
2. Zune to zune wireless transfers are only unrestricted for picture files. Any music sent can only be listened to 3 times or for 3 days... whichever comes first.
3. The wireless can't be used for anything else besides music or picture transfer. (no internet browsing, wireless downloads, etc)
That being said, its still a fantastic piece of hardware. If the folks over at zune-linux ever get linux running on the zune so that the full potential of the device can be used, or if mediamonkey supported music transfer to the zune, I'd probably buy one in a heartbeat.
