I'm so happy not to be the only one! Yes, the "my conception of hell" hits home for me too! I have a hand-me-down 8yo Thinkpad on XP and no Windows install CD, thus a fairly craptastic OS to begin with. Before enduring the UNVELIEVABLE NIGHTMARE OF UNINSTALLING AND REINSTALLING iTunes (oh, the horror!) it pretty much had gotten to a state where it wouldn't run at all.Quote:

Though maybe with icloud and the store already on devices its main function on a Windows computer would be relegated to a memory-hogging substandard piece of bloatware. One can only hope.
