I'm sick of itunes. It's so heavy on my computer. Plus, the wikipedia entry seems really biased.
Does anyone know any good alternatives for just listening to music, but with statistics?
Hmmm, winamp? Okay i'm trying out the lite and getting a feel for it. The full version is too heavy for my comp i feel. Or at least as heavy as itunes. My computer must look really bad to you lot lol!
Do plugins still work with the lite version?
You could also try songbird. Pretty sweet, and a lot lighter. It's based off the mozilla framework.
I really like iTunes. I am convinced it's your computer thats the real problem here.
It's probably best investing in some more RAM. Trust me, I ungraded from 512MB to 2GB and what a difference! RAM isn't very expensive any more either, so I really recommend upgrading. You will notice a difference in the overall performace of your computer... not just iTunes.
I'm sorry but I really need to make a rant about Itunes. Itunes is the biggest piece of crap software made in this whole entire universe. I mean, common, you have millions, let alone billons of dollars made from consumers like us, yet you can't hired a coder that can actually make a software that has user-friendly and computer friendly; yet you do the exact opposite. I had to reupload my library 3 times, once because of the stupid firmware update and 2 times because of the options. Would someone smack apple in the head and tell them to take their heads out of their butts and hired some coders with a brain? God. Well I'm done =P.
Install the newest version of Winamp and then choose skin classic (the old one). But I think that there is something else wrong with your computer. You should examine if there is any other program which is slowing down you computer. Antivirus and firewall are the most common programs which are resource hog.
Winamp and media player classic is the way to go.
