I notice that 8.1/8.1.1 is much faster on my G5 than 8.2+
Does anyone know where I can download an old version for OSX?
But they give no reason why there are no available downloads anymore.
Please help. Thank you!

As soon as I clicked to download, 8.2 began.
Thanks anyways! Any more ideas?

Don't know anything about torrents but a post on another forum suggests searching google for "iTunes 8.1 mac torrent".

Good suggestion, but searches thru 3 pages of google, and 4 different trackers turned up nothing.

The first link gave me a 404, but the second one worked!
Woo-hoo! Thanks, ginigo!
You wouldn't have a link for 8.1.1 as well, would you? Not to push my good luck!:D

After much heavy searching, I tracked down iTunes 8.1.1, which has a fix I've never heard mentioned, that 8.1 would display the last slide of art by default.

PS: if you wanna downgrade your iTunes, FIRST export your newer-version library as XML.
Then, after you install the older version, open it while holding alt/option.
Create new library. It'll be blank.
command-J. Adjust your personal settings on the view options.
Then, file>library>import playlist and import the XML file.
You'll have to let it re-collect gapless info, soundcheck levels, and genius, but whatever. Set it to work while you sleep.
Optional: Run xslimmer or Trimmit to reduce the app footprint and bloat from ~130mb to ~30
