Reflections on iTunes Bloat

Is iTunes Bloated? That’s a question I asked on this site back in June. I got some answers, responded to them, but I wasn’t convinced by much of what people were saying about iTunes bloat.

I’ve written an article for TidBITs called Is iTunes Bloated?, examining some of these points, rebutting many of them, and pointing out where iTunes could be changed, and where it can’t be. I’m sure many people will disagree with me on this, because this seems to be a question where people have entrenched ideas.

I admit that I know iTunes pretty well, and am not daunted by its many features. I’ve just written about them in Take Control of iTunes 10: The FAQ, for those who want to learn more about using the program.
