Steve Jobs Admits iTunes for Windows is a Sub-Standard App

In defending recent changes to the iPhone SDK agreement, Steve Jobs made a general argument about platforms:
    • Since iTunes for Windows uses non-native APIs such as CoreFoundation and CoreGraphics, Steve Jobs is effectively calling iTunes for Windows a sub-standard app.
    • Is iTunes hindering the progress of the Windows platform by not taking advantage of the latest native Windows APIs?
    • By Steve’s logic, Microsoft should start banning apps such as iTunes from Windows.
