You guys all complain about them taking features out, yet the reason we all complained in the first place is now addressed. The stability seems there. I've done a good amount of tinkering with the system, simulating scenarios in which the old system would choke up, and had nothing go wrong.

But half the guys on here and other forums did nothing but bitch about how long this was taking them, maybe they sacrificed things they didn't receive a lot of feedback about in order to get the system out earlier to shut everyone up who couldn't leave well enough alone.

I love the new system, losing my favorites is no big deal. The progress bar for music is one thing, but it's not enough for me to find the new system "useless" and a "POS" like some of you guys.

Small things may have been overlooked, they often are when programming, I know from my minimal experience and I'm sure those of you with a programming background are as well.

That said, outside beta testing would have been the way to go, but it's live and learn for them. As we find issues, they'll know who to call next time.

Just be happy our system is now usable, much faster, and improved overall.

And for those who think the new system looks dated compared to the old, I think you guys are nuts! A simple GUI with bold fonts is much better, and even more modernized as far as I'm concerned. The old system looked a lot more muddied than the new system, if you ask me. The new one has crisp colors, easily identifiable buttons, and looks cleaner overall.

But that's just me.
