Why does it annoy me so much … why isn’t there a truly good alternative (including netcast support)?
It like totally infests the machine. Would it be too much trouble to ask that iTunes (and the bundled programs) only run when I ask it to? At least give me the option.
Why the heck is is so large of a program? Why does it consume so many resources?
There should be more advanced settings (there should actually be a “configure” mode for all programs) for power users, and extensions would be nice, too.
I should be able to rip songs and encode them using an external encoder like LAME.
