Tut. Im a bit dissapointed. The new iTunes 5 is a bit...Windows!! Noooo!!!

Anyway, i made a folder, and put my smart playlists in them, hoping that the folder would be on iPod (like another step in the Playlist Menu). They dont. How exactly do i get them out of there??

    hey, apple finally got rid of the brushed metal look. it's more in line with Tiger's smooth metal look and feel... that alone is worth celebrating.... (now they just have to get rid of the brushed metal in iphoto and safari and i'll be happy.)

    PLUS, the time display is MUCH better now. it's more like the ipod's display. it shows BOTH time played and time remaining and has that diamond which you can use to scrub through the song.

    scrolling through songs before was fast but now it seems to be super fast.

    you can set itunes to automatically import a CD when you insert it and also set it to import and eject. that makes importing your CD collection easier and faster.

    they added a new search bar (edit>show search bar)

    it also seems like they added more 'view options'

    scrolling through songs before was fast but now it seems to be super fast.

    seems to work great here. syncing seems exactly the same as it did in 4.9

    scrolling seems faster and there seems to be a quicker response in playing songs (when you double click on a song to play it, it starts immediately, no delay whatsoever)

    I can't believe people have actually managed to download it already. My download is creeping along at 3 KB/sec. Hasn't shown up in Software Update yet, and apparently the servers are overloaded (my usual download speed is around 350 KB/sec).

    It's not the connection...2.75 Mb/sec

    Guess I'll just have to wait

    It's called Platinum, just like it was in Mac OS 9...
    I like the new look of iTunes. Apple's finally eliminated almost all the wasted brushed metal space. There no "borders" on the sides—great! I hope the Finder will be next.

    my download was initially crawling (said it was going to take 45+ minutes) but because i had downloaded quicktime i needed to restart my machine. after restart i double clicked on a the partially downloaded file on my desktop to resume downloading and this time it took about 10 seconds to download.

    Haven't installed it yet. Does anyone know if you can share music with older versions of iTunes still? I don't want to install it if that feature is broken. There are numerous people in the office who might hurt me if they lost access to my share!

    I haven't been able to share music after upgrading .. iTunes 5 computers can't see any other iTunes 4 or 5 computers, but iTunes 4 computers can see iTunes 5. What happened Apple??

    Cool. Thanks for the feedback. I'm not worried about being able to see other people's shares since I've got over 400 albums in it. It's mostly just making sure all the iTunes 4 people can still see me. Looks like it's a go!

    Again, thanks for the quick response!

    I downloaded and installed it but didn't get chance to play with it yet. Had to go to work and now that I'm here, I'm dying to get home and play with it.

    Then I saw that QT 7.0.2 is out and so I got another thing to download and install.

    I, like many others, wanted the folder organization for the play lists. The stuff I get the the iTMS I make play lists called, for example, Happy Tunz 1,2,3,etc. With the folders, I can finally put them into one folder and reduce the amount of scrolling for the playlists. I am happy.

    Thanks John -- How about the iCal syncing? Are you using it? I was having problems with a recurring event showing up every day instead of once a week.
