    I think that the iTunes program for Windows is the worst Windows program that I have ever seen.
    I run it on 2 PCs and both react the same.
    1. The program is a horrible process hog.
    2. It operates on Jamaica time. It responds when it gets good and ready and not a moment before.
    3. It hanggggggggggggs I mean it will not shut down and can not be shut down by any means other than a reboot.
    4. When downloading iPhone or iPod updates, you know those 200Mbyt files, if it is interrupted it does not save what it has downloaded it must start over and over.
    5. And don't even get me started on the Safari browser. Crash city, but only when you are doing something of value.

    Mr. Jobs shame on you. I love my iPhone and my iPod touch but iTunes truly SUCKS as does Safari for iEverything.

    Then use it on a Mac. It wasn't originally designed for a pc anyway. How do you think us MS Office users feel? It is in the same boat as itunes is in running on a pc. Very unstable :(

    6. It doesn't follow standard UI conventions (eg. you can't double-click the top-left corner to close).

    I agree. Safari is the shabbiest Windows browser by a long way, its rendering and responsiveness are just horrible, and the interface does not make me want to change to a Mac. iTunes is a horrible inefficient implementation and I have it open the absolute minimum of time possible.

    I love my iPhone but Apple software on the PC really bugs me.
