Like seriously who thought this would be a good design for Connect in iTunes? You have all this landscape to use and Apple insists on fitting the content into this small width of display. Seems like a waste

That's similar to some twitter clients. Multiple feeds from multiple artists will be shown side-to-side as they start adding content.

Basically, it looks to me like Apple is chasing the millennial demographic and forsaking the old folk who have been using iTunes since the first iPod rolled off the assembly line. The kids buy more music so we were thrown under the bus for the sake of the profits (been thrown under it for less...). I would like a toggle back to the 'classic' version. The new UI is too busy and god forbid, using it on a 13" screen with a large font that old folks are fond of, I have so much stuff overlapping in the columns it is unusable. I just want my dropdown arrows and words. I don't need graphics. I learned to read English.

Must be "optimized" for the smaller screens, mine looks too small on my screen, 13" Air. I actually decided to just turn Connect off on iTunes, I can't see ever having the want to use it.

iTunes --> Preferences --> Parental --> Check under "disable" Apple Music Connect.

Bam, Connect "tab" gone from iTunes.

Rejoice endlessly.

I think you mean the generation right after the millennials. I'm 25 (tail end of the generation) and many of us were buying music right as the iTunes Store came out. It was the hip thing to do, as you will.

3 or 4 years younger than I seems very different, although it's more than likely my own bias.

The iTunes UI is exactly the same... the only things that are different are the new Apple Music tabs which you can happily ignore.

This seems to be more a case of 'old man yells at cloud'...
