Glad to know I'm not the only one really looking forward to see how this is. The Windows version is soo bad.

What's wrong with it?

I mean really, people continue to make statements like this & I use iTunes on Windows every single day with a library of over 10,000 songs and I experience zero problems.

Infact even without an iPod I would still use iTunes over other music software.

I can only speak for myself, but I agree with you both. It works well, but the GUI is totally out of place. Perhaps that's what he's referring too?

I think the GUI looks quite nice, i just hope that requiem 4.0 still works with it as drm copies of tv shows really sucks.

It lags whenever a new podcast is finishing downloading, it lags when I first open it up and it has to check about 12 podcasts for new episodes, it lags when its looking for my phone or ipad, it lags when syncing with either of those, it lags when app updates are finishing downloading.

Also, by lag, I mean freezes for about 5-8 seconds.

I would probably use it if it didnt have those issues, but it does, and I cant wait to see if the new version is good or not.

I'm really hoping we'll see something happening in the desktop department, not to mention iLife and iWork updates are long overdue. In fact the new iLife is so long overdue the installer certificate of my iLife '11 DVD actually expired.

iTunes on windows sucks donkey balls. Every operation, every screen switch, every task makes it lock up or stutter. Simple tasks should be instant, it's like it's phoning home to apple to ask mummy if it can do what I ask then mummy thinks about it for a while then gives permission.

It constantly drops connection with my iPad over WiFi, mainly just as you need to add something new or sync.

I don't care about the UI, just make it work smoothly and quickly, not like it's swimming in treacle.

Roll on 11

Hmm.. that's weird because I haven't experienced any of those issues. That sucks. Have you tried reinstalling? Does other software lag or just iTunes? Maybe you have an iOS backup corruption or something in your library is odd. Have you installed any addons to iTunes? I once had issues when installing .wma playing plugins in iTunes for Windows that were the source of a lot of the lag.

I'm not sure why so many windows users are having frustrations with iTunes. I have it on 3 Windows machines (and even an old Pentium 4 machine) and it seems to run as well as any other program on those machines.

The only problem I've had is having to re-login to get iTunes Match working again, which has been frustrating. I think I had it solved by following a guide though. It hasn't popped up in awhile. iTunes is far from perfect, but I disagree that it is ****ty. Spotify is slower, clunkier, and has a way uglier interface and people don't seem to really care when it comes to Spotify.

I hope you figure out your iTunes issues.

I really hope they don't break compatibility with the last SRS iWOW as the new one with the huge chunky UI starts installing kernal extensions and screwing with the overall sound.

I've never experienced what you're describing. Not even on slower PCs.

Indeed, I used iTunes for all my music as well as podcasts and probably would still do even if I didn't used both an iPhone and an iPad (which both mostly sync for podcasts anyway) and I never have any problems with it, people call is slow, bloated and a resource hog, only slow part I've seen is the app tab for iDevices and while I suppose having the iOS appstore in an app called iTunes is odd having several apps for iOS syncing would be ever more odd. As for resource hog, I'll just point out that Steam which for some reason is such a beloved app always uses more RAM on my machine, yet it's always slow whether, a lot slower than iTunes ever is, specially when loading the web based parts.

I do have problems with the WiFi sync as well as homesharing/remote but that's not a fault of iTunes, that's a problem with my network, more specifically the router not working like needed with signals between the WiFi and wired network. Think it was related to multicasts, my old WiFi switch had the same issue until I switched a setting which allowed multicasts to go between the Wired and the Wifi part of the network, think that was it anyway.

I also still really do wish that iTunes would have a kind of now playing playlist, look at WMP, along the right side you have an empty playlist in by default, just put some songs in there and play, I've been using iTunes DJ with an empty playlist as source but it's not quite as good an experience as you have to switch the view to it or run two iTunes windows. I think iTunes 11 was supposed to get some now playing feature letting you reorganize what's coming up but I'm not sure it'll fill this function.

Maybe soon after the event on October 23rd.

It'd be great if Apple announced and included a Spotify-like service in the new iTunes.
