I downloaded iTunes last night (it's *free*) and it's brilliant! It's missing a couple of features I liked Winamp having (stop after current, stop with fadeout etc) but it works perfectly, and the way the shop is integrated is very clever. If only I could buy from it... :-(
I read some people complaining that it installs Quicktime (it states this clearly before you install) and that it renames all your music (no it doesn't, unless you choose in the options menu to "reorganise music" or something simple).
All in all, an excellent product. And did I mention that it's FREE?
I used to use MM to rip my CDs and play my music. I used to use EphPod to sync my library with my iPod. I have removed both.
You can have iTunes and your iPod configured so that iTunes opens automatically when you connect your iPod; it syncs your library; then automatically 'removes' the iPod, ready for you to disconnect it. So no worries about corruption.
