His procedure for 'upgrading' iTunes 11 back to 10 worked perfectly for me
I've been open about the fact that I enjoy using Snow Leopard for my day-to-day work. I do think it is the height of Apple's powers and I don't like the general direction since Lion.
After reading about iTunes 11 I couldn't resist getting hold of the shiny new interface.
I think the lack of coverflow was the last straw, but before I realised that I'd started to feel disappointed with the interface.
I'm prepared to accept that this may be a reluctance to adopt change, but for the record here are a few things that baffled me:
- Your music list is data - why not be able to change the way you view that data (list, album list, grid or coverflow) easily with buttons at the top of the window, consistent with Finder?
- The box at the top was a good analogy for an LCD display. OK, it no longer has the LCD look (what is it meant to look like now?) but it just doesn't seem right to have controls in there (eg the shuffle button)
- The play, next and previous buttons no longer look like physical buttons - there's nothing to tell you that they're 'pressable'. I can't see any reason for this change other than 'for the sake of it' but whatever the reason, why still have the volume slider looking 3D physical thing?
