Because there were far more Windows users when it was launched. Haven't heard of any great exodus to Macs just because of itunes on Windows. You'll get a few but no great numbers and that's what will happen with all these MS services, people will use them on their preferred platform and won't move because they don't have to, especially when their current ecosystem has everything else they need.

This is dumb and another example of how Microsoft would rather sell to the other platforms than boost up their own. Heck, I might as well get an Android device. All of the Microsoft goodies will eventually get there anyway. Ridiculous.
PLUS, the only platform they are excluding is Windows Phone 7. Awesome.

Our goal as Microsoft fans is to represent Xbox Music so that one day its bigger than iTunes that's the end goal. I don't care what platform its on as long as its better than iTunes cause I am dead tired of hearing about it when other services are better.

No one will move over to WP when their current platforms have MS services on top of the advantages they already have in apps and ecosystem. The Trojan horse strategy won't work for MS when it hasn't worked for apple with the millions of iphone and ipod users who still use Windows pc's.

So... Microsoft release this stuff. People won't switch because they have access to Microsoft services from their current phones.
Microsoft don't release this stuff. People don't experience the services, don't switch as a result...
Damned if they do, damned if they don't...

Microsoft doesn't care if you switch from Android or not. IOS or not. This about making money.
Heck, depending on what company you buy your droid from, they are already getting a royalty for that too from the patent lawsuits
