    Ok, call me late-in-the-game, but I decided to heed my software update and installed the latest iTunes. Now I regret doing that.

    The new interface is just plain ugly: no more aqua scroll bars; no more blue accents when clicking on the any of the buttons in the interface; the equalizer button is missing; the visualizer button is missing...

    I can't even figure out how to change the iTunes equalizer from full screen to working inside the app window--unless Apple changed it to be full screen only.

    I even see the 90 degree corners of the application, whereas beforehand it used to have rounded corners.

    This program is looking more and more like a Windows application.:(

    The equalizer opens in a window not full screen? If you are talking about the visualizer then command-F toggles between fullscreen.

    The visualizer is still accessible via hot-key, you can configure a hot-key for the equalizer too.

    The corners are still rounded, just not as much. I quite like the new look, each to their own i guess.

    Yeah, I like it too. And I had no bugs or crashes. Well, okay, it didn't realize it needed to update my iPod right away, but other than that no problems. I recommend it, but hey, like he said.

    I like it, and I think just because you can't use it [yet] doesn't mean its more Windows Like.

    Aqua is dated now, this look is fresh and clean.

    I like it- apart from the black shiny scroll bars in CF.

    Yeah I wish Apple would allow you to customize which buttons you want a la Safari or the Finder. I guess they felt it was prudent to remove the Visualizer and Equalizer buttons in favor of placing more practical buttons such as Burn Disc, Browse, and Eject Disc on the lower right hand corner.

    I don't know, it's fine to me. I guess I have just gotten used to the changes that seem to be in every update.

    Worst thing about itunes 7 is that it runs like a dog, it is really slow compared to 6. I think my library load time tripled with 7 vs 6.

    I got much small soundfiles and audiobooks so i have over 45000 files in my library, but no cover art etc.

    You could try UNO or Aqua4iTunes; they really make it loads nicer :)

    I like the iTunes 7 interface, it looks a little slicker than iTunes 6 did. I guess your going to hate Leopard as they have pretty much based everything on the iTunes 7 interface.

    Also I have found it to be extremely stable never really had a problem with it at all.
