iTunes’ Windows Problem

Jean-Louis Gassée:

Today, the toxic waste of success cripples iTunes. There are times when I feel that iTunes has reached Windows Vista bloatware proportions: Increasingly non-sensical complexity, inconsistencies, layers of patches over layers of patches ending up in a structure so labyrinthine no individual can internalize it any longer. (Just like the Tax Code.)

I’ve been thinking about this a lot lately, and by far iTunes is the one app on my Mac that I do two things with:

  1. Dread using.
  2. Actively block websites from opening.

Something needs to change.
