    I expect Mr. Softee to do evil. I thought Apple thought different. So, why in order to install Quicktime for Firefox, do I have to take iTunes? I hate iTunes; it automatically installs itself in the SysTray and puts little files all over the hard-drive.

    There should be a standalone Quicktime installer somewhere. I’m already late for camping, but I can look around when I get home tomorrow afternoon.

    I use Itunes only for buying music. My default music player is Quintissential Player.

    Now apologize to Apple for casting aspersions.

    (Geez, I’ve become such a fanboy. Hated Macs before OS X — I swear!)

    I apologize for calling them evil for forcing me to take iTunes. They’re only evil for hiding the option to NOT take it. 🙂

    It’s not hidden — it’s right there on the same page, lower right-hand corner, top entry on the list right above “Which iPod are you?” (Granted, it’s a lot smaller than FREE DOWNLOAD NOW.)
