    Some of the writers observations were simply uninformed.

    ie. rendezvous not working maybe because they didn't see any settings for it.

    funny thats the beauty of rendezvous. also funny that a windows user would have problems with something that doesn't have a bunch of settings.

    Rendezvous is actualy a little program that runs in the background, looking and broadcasting. Even on the Mac it is no built into the system, you'll find a little app running, sorry I forget the name. I would imagine the PC is the same since the install doesn't touch the networking settings.

    I would also like to note that the system the writer was using is just barely on the bottom of the requirements. A celeron chip is a stripped down pentium in order to keep the cost down, a dual 533 celeron would be just as useless, not to mention iTunes may or may not even support dual systems. (iTunes requires a 500mhz system). So this is probably the reason the UI was a problem for them.

    I've used iTunes for windows on a 800mhz Athlon and have been quite impressed, everything works like it should, and I find it runs much much faster then Windows Media Player... not even close. It does not run as fast as winamp (2.0, 3 sucks) but winamp also has little to no features comparably.

    just my informed First Impressions :)
