here's the most common arguments i saw:
itunes stores the albums as:
itunes folder > artist > album
seems great to me, lol.
itunes has a error correction option that a user may select, obviously it slows the ripping but does the error correction stuff some people deem necessary. IMO i think it's only needed with a scratched cd. (i'm gonna get bashed for this, but it's a computer, it can read a cd at 48x if it's not scratched)
|syncing with multiple comps
you can sync your ipods with multiple computers that YOU own and have the login to, if they're signed in with the same itunes account.
well... sorry if you have an old computer. or if 5-10 second load times annoy you.
|it tries to sell you stuff
hmmm. well i guess that's one of the many tabs on the program... you don't have to click it if you hate the idea of buying music. i actually use the itunes store a lot to find new music because it's quite beautifully written to know similar artists you might like. (i know this feature isn't uncommon, but the one in itunes really works well) this, and pandora, is how i find a lot of new music.
you win. i'm okay without it though.
