    there is no shortage of issues with this depressing peice of crap so i will not even begin to list them, there are so many and they are listed everywhere, but i must say it is so much more effort than it is worth.

    if you have not already done so i SERIOUSLY recommend NOT installing it

    I love the new iTunes 7. It has a few bugs, but I haven't come across anything too serious.

    Oh and if you want us to take you seriously, I suggest opening a dictionary. Better yet, launch Dictionary.app.

    baby want a bottle? :( :( :(

    if your going to start threads you should at least back up your argument with some points "EG, I hate it when iTunes 7 does this" or "It crashes every time I..."

    right now you just sound like your whining for the sake of whining.

    I found it well worth the effort to work with it, and as with any first version release I knew there might be bugs.

    I haven't experianced any bugs my-self what are these bugs eveyone speaks of? It seems most people are just complaining about the UI, which I happen to like. As John Bell would say " I lovessssss me some iTunes 7" :)

    That's because they always mess with their systems since they know better than Apple?

    Not everything goes right for me but it's rare that something horrendous happens and it's usually some problem with the hard drive's volume.

    I have never had a problem with any update before iTunes 7. It crashes for no reason, it crashes because I push the Return button, it crashes when speeding through Cover Flow, and it just doesn't fit in with the rest of the system. Actually I find the fact that everybody is now singing the interface praise strange, as most users thought the iTunes didn't fit in before and now it has no aqua and it's perfect. I just must be some mutant who loves all three styles.

    I don't like any of the various looks of iTunes, but I thought that version 6 was better and hoped that it signaled the way to Leopard.

    try running wow or pretty much any game (CS source works fine for some reason) while listening to music...it will skip like crazy, not worth listening to at all

    and do not give me any crap about "your computer is too slow", my friend has an E6800 Conroe and two raptors in a raid and his does it also

    this would be acceptable, but many people at my work who upgraded have had entire albums skipping to the last song no matter what song you start on (some of them have macs), although this has not happened to me it is yet another reason why not to upgrade

    in addition on my PC itunes is using between 10% and 15% of the CPU, itunes 6 used arround 2%

    I understand that not everyone is having these issues, however itunes 6 was completley flawless, why bother upgrading only to end up with software that is much worse and much more unstable than the original

    but hey, you might get lucky and get:
    lame album art feature
    expensive low quality movies
    a crappy looking UI
    All FREE OF BUGS!!!

    a little knowledge is a dangerous thing

    sure it did, pitty they are all lame or do not work, oh and we are talking the basic function of itunes: to PLAY MUSIC is NOT WORKING (on both my pc and mac) for not just me, but for lots of people

    I am not sure if you understand, if you want these features (and i know some people are really anal about album art), go ahead download itunes 7, but unless you are lucky there will be lots of bugs.

    at least wait untill 7.1 or whatever...

    I listen to music all the time while I'm working, so the complete Creative Suite 2 is opened, iCal and some other stuff + itunes 7. No problems here so far. Never crashed or did anything unexpected.

    And I like the album art feature very much actually. I use it to browse through my music all the time now.

    The ui in general is something I have to get used to.

    the whole skipping thing seems to be confined to PCs, but there are still many bugs on the mac.

    what i mean by *skipping* is the song will skip foward about half a second at very small intervals so you get the effect of the song playing very fast but with no pitch alteration

    sounds really stupid

    The more i try to hate iTunes the more it grows on me. It simply works for and has no issues whatsoever. Although i do miss iTunes 6, i can live with itunes 7. I'm just happy i found a way to make it look like itunes 6 thats was my major peeve....the UI and i've modified it. So no worries. I suggest you re-install the whole thing. My brother doesnt have issues with it as well and he's running on a PC AND his PC is loaded/bloated with crap but runs iTunes fine.

    iTunes 7 on my iMac G5 crashes about 50% of the time I use it, always when moving between songs. The songs on my iMac are stored in my user home drive (FileVault not enabled), so it's not like a non-standard setup. However, on my PBG4 where the songs are stored in a shared area of the HD iTunes is stable as ever.

    I've also noticed that ripping CDs on the iMac is now only about a quarter of the speed it used to be, although I'm told that's a QuickTime problem. There's definitely something not right with the software, but it's not a consistent bug.

    I haven't had any problems with iTunes 7 on my G3 500 iMac, apart from the fact that the git literally devours system resources. Of course, that might just be Quicktime 7, but it's certainly hurting Safari. :(

    And while I don't hate the GUI, it certainly looked happier, for lack of a better word in iTunes 6.
