So you are trading one silo for another and not getting any of the UV benefits. Walmart is surely a terrific custodian of that trust!
Also, so we're now talking 5 years for the full, streamlined everyone is part of it UV, eh?
What other silo? I'm sure itunes would work great as it does for many people, but, and its a big but...itunes doesn't work on any of my devices so its a non starter for me. Amazon might be ok but I really like the way ultraviolet is set up. Add in the fact that studio support for itunes is declining while support for UV is becoming the standard according to this chart, UV is not only the smart choice but for most of us, its about the only choice.
