That may depend on what you do with it. I haven't noticed it veering in the direction of the iTunes store ever, but I only use it for ripping CDs, playing them back and transferring them to the iPod.
Well, there's the fact that you need an iTunes account to even access cover art - it's totally tied in with one online database only. Plenty of good, free ripping software around (and I rarely rip anyway, usually I just play my CDs; the only occasion I rip is when I go on a big trip and want to take some music of my destination countrie(s) with me - not this year since I haven't found any music from Yemen yet). iPod? not for me - it may be fashionable but I go for functionality, and on that it loses from most of its competitors.

Possibly - but somehow I doubt the differences are very great. But not owning a Mac I can't really tell - it's just a gut feeling (the Windows version feels more like a Mac program than a Windows program to me).

Perhaps there aren't any really good music programs for the Mac?
