This is just one of the several reasons I do not like iTunes.

I use iTunes, but I do not like to use iTunes.

I mourn for MusicMatch Jukebox.

100% ! I keep MusicMatch 8.2 on the computer for "fixin" things.   iTunes is just an Out basket.

Me, too.  But I think I might have 7.2.  I prefer MM for tagging files from old LPs after I record them with Audacity.

It took me awhile to figure out that I had to remove Windows Explorer 7 to get it MM to work again, but I got it figured out.

The only problem is it no longer looks up albums and fills in the titles.  I think they shut down the library or whatever it checked.

Definitely Amazon for downloads.  Who needs Apple's DRM anyway?

iTunes is DRM free these days (for music at least), but just like Amazon, the files are forensically tagged with identifying information to track them back to the purchaser.
