Given that Logitech is:

"one of Microsoft´s premier hardware peripherals partner for marketing Windows Vista-based communications solutions"

http://www.logicool.co.jp/index.cfm/news/CA/EN,contentid=12915,crid=34

and with the launch of Vista at the end of this month, I wonder how plausable it is that the purchase of Slim at this time could be a bid to use the Squeezebox technology as a step into the Windows Media Extender market.

These Windows Media extenders essentially do exactly the same job for anyone using a Media PC running Windows Connect on a 'master' PC as the Squeezebox does for anyone running Slimserver in the same manner (albeit without video or photos).

It's just sound quality what gets harmed - Extenders creators apparently have different priorities.

If Logitech wants a combo - fine with me as long as it doesn't ruin current level of SB sound quality. Next step - a dishwasher with embedded SB?
