This is a horrible update, what the heck happened???

 

1.  Search for music, in the result window, click on Name column header to short by song name and I get 2 minutes of beachball before it completes the sort??

2.  Click on the play music icon to get song preview and nothing, nada, zip??

3.  Interface is very slow

 

Anyway to go back to 10.4.0?

    I would add the Finder/Cover issue, people tested it and saw the problem even on SL and L, so the problem IS iTunes 10.4...and 10.4.1 didn't fix it.

    Yeah, iTunes 10.4 and 10.4.1 I noticed is very buggy. Strange little things, like:

    1) downloads (for podcasts) which just sit there at 0. I click "refresh" and nothing. If I pause the download and continue, then it starts up no problem.

    2) If a podcast is blue dot (unheard) or yellow dot (downloading/refreshing) those dots wont go away if either i mark it as read, or the download/refresh is done. It's as if the screen is not refreshing correctly. However, if I open or close the arrow (to view/hide the episodes), the dot goes away.

    3) Sync's sometimes fail or just hang there (again like the downloading, never starts)

     

    Don't know if it's *my* setup, but I notice it started with 10.4.0

    Well put. Also to add to the list is hardware aging. I have a PowerMac G5 which runs really well. Further, it cost me a pretty penny. When they moved to Intel, I knew my days were numbered. But I really got ticked when they started focusing away from the 32-bit MacBooks... why is it with Apple that it's always "oh I should have waited" but even if you do, you're lucky to get 4 years out of perfectly good (and durable) hardware because the software and OS is dropping it. Sorry, I am used to my Linux boxes which last me ten years on average even when there's massive hardware failure... yeah, $29 mobo's don't last too long I'm looking at you "WinFast" LOL

    Yah. I suspect as mucho when it comes to UI issues like sorting. That is based on the API.
