I only used iTunes because by the time I realized it was crappy, I already had over 10k songs in the library and will be a real PITA to move it anywhere.(That's why I'm now making my own player tailored for my needs )
I just realized this HUGE advantage of using my new player over iTunes..... IT CAN PLAY FLAC!!!
HELL YEAH~! I'm done with converting all my files to ALAC!
Playing audio has never been more easy for me :D
