Well I did have 2 threads on why iTunes is slow on Win XP.Not slow on my PC with Windows XP Pro. Maybe it's your computer that is slow. What is slow is my willingness to spend $1.29 per song. Where the heck are all the $.69 songs Apple popped off about?
You don't know anything about iTunes. Apple has different servers and just becasue you have good service from the store, does not mean that we all do.iTunes has no control over your internet connection speed.
I've spoken with Apple as well and they are definitely having issues. Comments made by the previous poster serve no purpose other than to provoke. It's not worth your time and effort.I did contact Apple, and they confirmed that they are experiencing some technical issues. They hope to have it up and running soon.
