Apple today released a Windows version of iTunes onto its website. In a pitch on its home page - titled Hell Freezes Over - Apple describes its new baby as "the best Windows app ever".

iTunes has proved exceedingly popular with North American Mac afficionados, who have bought gazillions of music downloads since the launch earlier this year.

Apple, of course, accounts for just three per cent of PC users - but maybe more of music-loving, music-ripping people. Extending iTunes to Windows will enable the company to more easily defend its new turf against even newer upstarts. ®
