I need to complain about the same problem. I have 1/10th the songs in i-Tunes (~4800) and I cringe every time I want to start the program. The same delay happens anytime I load or switch a CD to import a song.
Google can load a billion links in a blink; can't you load a millionth of this info in the same amount of time? Any hints would be greatly appreciated.
iTunes can also load really slow if antivirus software is scanning the itunes folders & files. iTunes updates its XML file about every 10-15 seconds while you're playing music, so if Norton or something else is scanning it, you can have problems besides the library loading slowly.
The ITL library file is a LOT smaller in iTunes 8.1 and loads more quickly.
