    I hate the fact that just to update iTunes, not to a whole number but were talking like 0.1 to 0.2, just as an example, you have to download 32.MBS worth of files, you pretty much reinstall the whole app again, I find this to be bull****

    I needed to vent, what do you all think?

    It's simply ridiculous that you're forced to reinstall Quicktime 6 each time and the fact that it takes so long to do all this.

    Apple should also really work on making iTunes load faster, cause because of that I totally rather use Windows Media or WinAMP.

    Apple needs to take the media dil** out of their a** and listen to the consumer.

    Glad someone got that subject title. :)

    I must had laughed hardest at the SNL parody.

    iTunes works much faster in OSX and the updates are generally smaller too. Why would Apple have it any other way? Why would they make spend time and money optimising iTunes for Windows when they want people to use Macs? :p
