I've had it with iTunes 7. It takes 4-5 seconds to open a song, it takes 2-3 seconds of wheel spinning to even scroll, it takes 3-4 seconds just to respond to a menu click, it's shuffle is broken. In short it is a gigantic piece of ****. In my current setup, iTunes on my macbook core duo is loaded with a few thousand songs playing off a SAN. Foobar 2000 (installed in paralells) and Amarok (linux partition) running on the same machine w/ the same SAN, open files in .1 of a sec, have no problem scrolling etc. Unfortunately under OS X there doesn't appear to be a reasonable alternative to itunes, if there is please somebody let me know. And whoever put out itunes 7, please die in a fire, that is all.
