Miscellaneous Thoughts and Observations on iTunes 11   —  There are redesigns and there are redesigns.  This one's the real deal.  It's not a rewrite though.  Clearly, in its heart, under the hood, this is still the same iTunes.  It's what you see (at least in the main window; see below) that's all new.
