Zune Exec Zooms Off

The man behind the Zune has left Microsoft, and no one is really saying how or why. Bryan Lee, by all accounts, got the Zune out on time and in stores in time for Christmas. I looked superficially at the specs and thought it compared quite favorably to the iPod. That is, until Redmond Report readers set me straight, pointing out the Zune won't play tunes Microsoft originally promised it would, such as WMA tracks bought from Napster and other music services, or even from Microsoft itself.
