To clarify: Coverflow cannot be turned off, as far as I know. You can opt not to use it as a way to browse the library, and when you browse using test-based methods (such as artist, genre, album name), the text does use the whole screen. But in the menus, the text of the menu options only uses the left half of the screen, while some graphic occupies the right half (depending on the menu option highlighted -- for music options, it shows portions of album covers, there are dedicated graphics for such things as settings and extras).
