Transfering iTunes 11 Library from PC to Mac

I'm finally making the switch to Mac. I have iTunes 11 on my PC. What is the best way to transfer my library of music/movies etc from my PC to my new Mac? I used to be able to burn my library to DVD (which would also serve as a hardcopy backup for safe keeping), but it looks as though it's no longer an available option (or is it?). Is the only other way to transfer the files via Home Sharing of my iTunes? Or is there a better/faster way?

Good Question

I plan to do the same. Right now, I have my entire library on my external drive, and plan to plug it in, copy my files over, and hopefully everything goes smoothly.
