I still really like Mike Doughty.

No one wanted to start a debate about iTunes 8?  It's nearly a watershed moment.  I'm nearly possibly considering a new nano.  and a major switch.  It's, like, a really big deal. 

I am dissatisfied with the lack of folder monitoring, though.  hmmm

what do you like better than Itunes and why? I hve not tried the Genius thing yet, but I plan to later today

WMP11.

one: indexed search for music
two: I'm an album guy, rather than individual tracks, so wmp album stacking behind artist is really useful.
three: better integration with WMC, etc (although the necessity for that has fallen off somewhat.)
four: wma is pretty decent.  otherwise have to use high bitrate mp3 to get everything to work together.  aac has a bunch of limitations.
five: auto monitoring (I typically purcahse from amazon and i have an e-music account, so it's really helpful to not have to constantly import everything.)
six: i'm sure there's something to put here...

The genius thing is kinda cool.  If only for recommendations of music to get.

I can see that, I think by its nature (apeal to as many people as possible) Itunes is dumbed down, Apple tends to make thinks simple and intutive at the cost of power users I think. In an effort to appeal to the masses they left out things audiofiles would think should be standerd. As an example you would think there would be a dealte all duplicates option, but there is not if you have 500 duplicate songs you have to delete each one manually. They likely did that so you could not screw up and delte half your music, but for a power user its annoying.

You two basically just summed up everything I was going to say.

Also, I need new music.  Badly.  That's what the next two weeks are for.
