Default Zunes and syncing...

Does/Can the Zune sync with a program other than the special Zune software? If i wanted to get it to sync with Winamp, AT&T Music Player, Mediamonkey, etc...can it be done? This may not be make or break for me, but I usually tend not to use packaged software with my devices. Keep in mind, i'm not concerned about video and video conversion. If i want to put videos on it, then i'm sure i'd use the Zune software so i could guarantee compatibility...but for music, you should be able to use whatever the hell you want!

Knowing Microsoft I don't think it would support others.

to me, it's not a manufacturer thing...it's on the other end...just because it's not MADE to work with other software doesnt mean that people cant get it to work or the other software companies can't find a way to make it work, it just takes time and plugins...that's more of what i'm hoping for...but it'd prefer to stay away from the "knowing M$..." bullcrap. I mean, it's not like Apple doesn't do the same thing...

Zune software is closed to the Zune. It works on a modified version of MTP. It is not open to other manufactures to use.

i'm thinking the other way around though, is the Zune open to other software, or can it be made to be open by the community by either hacking or creating plugins

There are hacks to let the Zune with WMP11, but I think it still requires the Zune software to be installed. I haven't heard of any hacks that let it sync with other software, especially without the Zune software installed.
