Default iTunes 10 hands-on: snappier performance, questionable UI choices

Let's face it, performance is not iTunes' strong suit. I have a decent-sized library of some 6,700 tracks, for a total of 30GB of storage space—I can listen to music for nearly 51 days straight without ever hearing the same song twice. That is not a small music library, but it certainly doesn't compare to many people I know that complain that an iPod classic still isn't big enough to hold their library.

For those with large libraries hoping for a full Cocoa rewrite, this is not the iTunes update you've been looking for. But while iTunes 8 and 9 got progressively slower—it got to the point that switching to iTunes to skip a track or stop it to answer a phone call was a five to ten second trial of patience—Apple promised that iTunes 10 would offer faster performance.

ok, this is just awesomely integrated with the iPhone app "remote"
http://www.apple.com/itunes/remote/

you can search your itunes library and put the next song in the playlist; very very fast to search a song; almost instant;

now to build a lightweight frontend PC that hooks up to a stereo... or is there a device out there which can interact with an itunes library stores on PC and accept input from this iphone app? I don't have high hopes
