    Just go to the Apple website and you can download iTunes 4.1 for either Mac or PC. There are also updates for Quicktime to 6.4 and the iPod software to 2.1 available.

    Sweet! The timing is fortuitous, particularly now that eMusic has decided to drop the unlimited downloading option.

    Too bad it doesn't work. Everytime I go to the "Music Store" home page or to sign up or try to create a new account I get an error message

    "There is not enough memory available" WHATEVER.

    Some people are reporting lockups after installing iTunes under win2k. My work machine locked up with a missing DLL error and I had to do a win2k repair install to get back up and running.

    Ouch. If it's that bleeding-edge, I'll wait until it's more stable.

    I was interested until I saw it was W2K or XP only. I'm still on 98. Oh well. Maybe next Spring when I upgrade.

    Bad news for Canadians once again...

    If you are looking to purchase music from the store and you are Canadian, forget it, it's not available (right now) for us Canucks!

    Did anyone else have trouble downloading the installer? I had to click the "click here to download" link to get the download. The address (when you enter the download page) tries to access "nph-itunes.hqx" - HQX being a Mac binary file.

    Oh well.

    I got it all setup and workin in my WinXP machine...

    Sweet little program. Even neater is that It goes on the network and searches for other users with iTunes and lets you listen to their music!

    A tad bit bloated and power-hungry though, even on my XP1700+

    Yeah, I've had it running all evening, it's a great program...I don't like what happens when the ID3 tags aren't right on the song, and how it takes up 26 megs of resources when maximized (9 when minimized), but overall it's a "nifty" program [​IMG]

    Brice,

    Did you turn off the firewalls on individual computers on the LAN? All also iTunes has to be up and running on all machines you want to share with.

    I installed iTunes on my XP Laptop last night, and I'm pretty happy with it (I'm a longtime Mac user, but need the Windows laptop for a few things; it's works). I'm having trouble burning with it though; the service doesn't seem to start automatically, and after it's started manually, it'll die after awhie. Very strange.

    It's a bit of a resource hog, isn't it?

    The sharing aspect sounds great, but as my wife's PC runs Win98, I just realised it's utterly useless to our home setup.

    Ho hum, back to NetJuke.

    As a Mac user of iTunes, I am SO glad I have this app on my XP machine. I used the Creative app on my PC (which is good), but my favorite part about iTunes is it's "Consolidate Library" feature which takes all of your MP3's (no matter where they are on your system) and copies them to your iTnues folder. And not only does it copy them, but it creates sub folders according to Artist and then album. What a great organizational tool. [​IMG]

    Has anyone tried listening to the AC3 samples in the iTunes store? What great quality. (can you tell I'm giddy about this program [​IMG])
