    Eventually, everyone who whines about wanting to manage their own folders and filenames for images is going to be stuck using Linux. :D

    Yes, I probably will because I refuse to let iTunes attempt to library-ify my music because I do not trust it. Luckily iTunes isn't the only way to play music on Macs, though I still like iTunes for my internet-radio stations and podcast.

    That video was quite amusing. I'll have to pass it on to a few friends who need a good laugh.

    Yup, love that video. Seen it before. You should check out episodes 1 & 2 too.
    (I think #1 is about spotlight but I can't remember about #2).
    Microsoft is good at copying software, aren't they?

    There's a checkbox in iTunes that stops it from moving your files around. You can your music just the way it is now AND play it through iTunes with Smart Playlists, ratings, coverflow, etc. :)

    And FWIW, I've never had any problem with iTunes' auto-organization. Even if songs move from folder to folder (like if I rename the album for one, and then back) everything "just works." And the folder setup is very logical when you're in Finder, too.

    True, I hate to let applications organize my own stuff but iTunes is the exception to the rule, it actually does a great job at keeping the things the way I would have kept :)

    iPhoto however... is the opposite of this.

    Agreed, I Have two drives, one with originals, and the other with my iTunes Library. When I rip a song, I rip it to the First drive, then I copy them into iTunes and let iTunes keep them where it likes. I haven't run into a problem yet, and I always have a backup of my tunes.

    Not from CES 2007, from CES 2006!

    Here's episodes 1-3

    This video has been out for over a year now. That's how far behind Vista is!

    The expose one is funny now that I look back at it. One of my friends actually bought Vista and was all excited and telling me how he could see video in its "cool iso window view". I simply replied, "you mean like how it's worked in OS X, since 2003? Almost 4 years ago?" He then got all defensive and said it was useless anyway.
