    Is iTunes on a computer needed for any iPad related stuff once 5.0 is installed?

    Would love to delete it for ever...

    I never understood all the hate for iTunes. I personally enjoy using it.

    Most people who hate iTunes run it on Windows.

    On Windows, it IS butt slow and a resource hog.

    Not so much on a Mac.

    What would you use instead of iTunes? I will be genuinely surprised if you can name a better program for your music library.

    With iOS5 you can stream content from your computer running iTunes+HomeSharing now. Keep all the films on the computer and just stream them to your iPhone/Pad/TV when you want them, or when iTunes gets the latest podcast episodes for you. No reason to get rid of iTunes

    To actually answer your question:

    Nope. That's what PC free means.

    If you hate iTunes that much you never need to use it again with iOS 5.

    I would be genuinely surprised if you’ve ever heard of the better programs I could name...

    Spotify.

    Much more responsive than iTunes. It'll play local files without ads + it'll stream anything you don't own, with ads every five songs or so.

    As for if you can delete iTunes yet, I think the answer is no... as much as I despise iTunes, I have to admit that accessing and browsing the iTunes Stores is easier in iTunes than on the iPhone.

    The funny thing is that a streaming service does indeed work more smoothly than a player which plays local files.
