Be nice guys ; )
Although iTunes is free, the developer still have responsibility.
iTunes is funded with the money we paid for our iPhones, Macs and everything we buy at the Apple Store. They can not just leave us out in the cold no matter if iTunes is free or not.
Thats my opinion.

Well I have to say I'm pretty disappointed by the developers and the company's attitude in initially repairing pretty glaring holes in an updraft. (and yes I believe one should be able to rely on the integrity of the company to test properly and not let a sub standard set of changes or product out the gate. Clearly something that has not happened with the last few 'upgrades')
All that is sad as the original product was brilliant and getting better.
When the original problem of artwork 'getting lost' cropped up we all thought .. 'oh well, there'll fix it next time around' The fact they did not clearly shows that whoever was in charge of this development team really should not be doing the job.
As for the 'upgrades' .. it's clearly not a lover of albums or the true old fashioned listening experience that has had a positive hand in the task.
Again, such a shame as iTunes was starting to impress.
On the upside I guess is the fact that new iTunes makes some of the other previously clunky competitive products actually look really good...
Now I'd like to hear what people think of some of the alternatives... because if Apple dies not address this quickly and positively these will be great to have as a mac alternative and as an app for our devices!
it would be very interesting to see a accurate poll on whether the 'upgrades' were good or not. Somehow I think I can guess which way the comments would swing...

Sorry, bit of Freudian flip with updraft instead of upgrade and dies instead of does... although I do fear the the enthusiasm we have all had for iTunes and Apple certainly dies a little bit (if not more) with such slack attention to detail and taking the customer for granted. Like I said in my first post poor old Steve must be turning in his grave with things like this happening.
I do hope someone in Apple with an ounce of sense is reading all these posts and taking notes.

Feels like the new iTunes is geared toward rental and online purchases rather than music ownership like years ago. Perhaps someone more knowledgable can comment on this topic more eloquently than I can.

"Feels like the new iTunes is geared toward rental and online purchases rather than music ownership like years ago."
That is the big issue for me. What was once a really good full featured, any size audio management system has been dumbed down to a small media collection basic management system.
What made iTunes the best in class has been stripped out. What made iTunes a design of beauty has also been crippled with a "Microsoft" makeover so that it no longer has it's design elegance.
What also frustrates me is that I keep reading these posts in the hope that iTunes will be restored to the once great product that it was.
