    Out of the total suite of iTunes features, Apple should remove the following:

    Mini Player
    iTunes Hot Tips
    The Animated About iTunes Window
    The horrible, laggy Album Grid View
    The built in iTunes Music Store -- Have it as a fast, lean and smooth separate application
    The Genius Sidebar -- Keep the Genius icon in the "LCD".

    Apple should make sure that iTunes fits the following criteria when they release the new version:

    Slimmer (in size)
    Leaner (Overall speed and launch time)
    Faster at detecting iPod Touches and iPhones
    Fully Cocoa-based, no Carbon junk what so ever
    Leaner Interface -- Hopefully uniform, no new styles tucked away anywhere.
    No "in-built" Movie View, have it pop up in a new "Quicktime X-themed" window.
    No Visualizer -- who the hell uses these anymore?
    Data Detectors for Get Info, clicking on an Artist name from a BOUGHT song leads you to the Store Page in the External App.

    Anything else I should add? I posted this because I am sick of how bloated iTunes is beginning to feel

    i'd go with these

    Slimmer (in size)
    Leaner (Overall speed and launch time)
    i'd make it themable, too

    i think i'll switch to foobar2000 now that i'm not using my ipod for music s'much, it slows down my computer a whole lot less than itunes does
