    Agreed, this guy is just trolling the Apple complaint forms, if we choose to use these discussions as our soundboard to get our message, and points across to Apple, that's our business, That's what they're here for, this idiot, is using words like Betrayed, and stuff like that, it's a mistake that we would like to have remedied, and Apple does pay attention to these discussions, and sometimes that's all we need to have done, to have things work for the better. Just think about it for a minute, it's this guy says were stupid for downloading music from iTunes, what is he doing in an apple discussion to begin with, just ignore him, Mr. Androids work is done here, he's gotten All of you riled up, Which is understandable, because we do love our Apple products, and all we have to do is file a complaint on his name anyway and be done with him.

    So now you have to resort to name calling? if I am a idiot then you are a complete moron... and I never said you were stupid for downloading. I may very well have thought you were a rectum hole but I never put the idea out there until now.  Funny someone said that APPLE did'nt listen to customers when they made this change but you instantly set here like nervous prom night dates waiting for that special moment only to be stood up in the end.  Guarantee 6 months from now the same handful of you will be sitting here talking in circles beating the same dead horse. You people are just delusional... and you think that JObs would not have done this? LOL...  someone let the cuckoo out of the clock that's fo sure.

    Reminds me of one of my favorite Dan Hicks and the Hot Licks songs.

    Wow this is still going on lol.  I still use itunes and I still hate it but it doesn't ruin my life.  I use it because it is too much hassle to migrate everything I have.  But if anyone believes this was anything close to a good update they're just kidding themselves.  There wasn't a single good change.

    Yes, some features like the tagging interface aren't working very well, but it is an Alpha after all. : )

    Next week I'm going to suggest they look into how iTunes worked with single or multiple tracks when invoking cmd-I, Get Info. I like having everything available in a tabbed window.

    foobar in Windows is much better tan iTuens for mass tagging.  I rip on Windows just so I can use the tagging features of foobar before transfering the files to my Mac Mini.  The other reason I use Windows is that iTunes conversion doesn't copy all of the tags to the new version, especially sort tags.  It stores them in the database but when you look at the tags in the files, the tags aren't there.  I keep a back up of my library at work copying the files with Dropbox so it's important to me that the tags are there because I'm just transfering files not the database.   This is a problem with iTunes 10 so not something introduced in iTunes 11.  Really any versionof iTunes is not good for mass tag changes.  Over half of my library is classical and tags are rarely how I like them coming out of any tag database so I have quite a bit of experience editing tags with a bunch of tools.  foobar is the most powerful I've found.  Unfortunately, not available on Mac.

     

    It's interesting that people who are defending 11 are saying the people who don't like it are being immature and throwing tantrums.  The only imaturity I've seen here has been by those who propose work arounds that don't work and get upset when it's pointed out that it doesn't work. 

     

    I own over 7000 CDs. I rip 10 to 20 CDs a week.  I've developed a very efficient workflow for ripping CDs.  Part of my workflow is to convert from ALAC to AAC.  I do this in iTunes on Windows because iTunes doesn't always copy imbedded artwork to the converted file.  In iTunes 10, it's easy to find and fix the missnig artwork.  In iTunes 11, it's a PITA.  It's just one example of how iTunes 11 messed up my workflow, one that's appropos to this thread.  There are many others.

    As for leaving Apple, a couple of points

     

    I bought a Mac Mini last year just for using to maintain my library.  I'm in the habit of using a computer for 8-10 years not one, so I'm kind of stuck with it unless I want to install Windows 8.  Getting my library transferred completely was a royal pain because of the differences in file systems.  I really don't look forward to trying to move my library to another platform again. 

     

    I own an iPhone 4 and when it dies, I'll probably not replace it with an new iPhone.  I can't stand the iPhone as a music player so having music in iTunes doesn't really matter.  It'll be years before I need to replace my phone anyway.

     

    I own multiple iPod classics.  I've not found a portable that works as well as the iPod classic so I don't see moving away from them any time soon.  If they discontinue them, I'll probably buy a few more backups.

     

    I won't move from iTunes 10 unless the new software will sync play counts back from the iPod.  A lot of my playlists depend on accurate play counts

    These are the exact things that keep me with iTunes.

     

    I also use Play Count as a main paramater in a Smart Playlist that I synch several iPod Classics to.

     

    It wouldn't surprise me if there were a run on iPod Classics when they eventually discontinue them. I sure would like to see a 320 GB version, then I could keep my whole AAC encoded iTunes library on it.

    I have 240GB hard drive in mine, but that's only about 1/3 of my AAC tracks.  I have 12GB free on a 3TB hard drive for my entire library.  I'm looking at getting a 8TB usable RAID 5 NAS for both my library and my pictures.  I currently have my photographs on a Buffalo Terastation that had a drive failure on one of the drives in the RAID array.  It's old and the Mac Mini can't access it so I'm going to upgrade to one big enough for pictures and music rather than replace the bad IDE drive.

    I made the jump to a 4 TB RAID 0+1 a few years ago. It's backed up to a single 4 TB drive.

     

    I had all mi iTunes files on a 3 TB drive backed up to another 3 TD drive. The main drive bit the dust, at least I had the backup. I realized I needed a more robust solution, so on to RAID as well as a backup of the RAID.

     

    One of these days I'll get another 4 GB drive so that I can rotate backup drives and keep one off site.
