Spinning songs with iTunes DJ

Can you help with this? I'm struggling to see figure this out. What is the "Options Tab" in iTunes?

I use Fission for such things. Just the other day, it was very useful eliminating a lot of radio chatter in a Brad Mehldau FM recording I had downloaded.

I don't want to have to babysit my music, I want to set it and forget it. So I haven't used Party Shuffle/iTunes DJ for its intended purpose in a long time. I use it as a smart, random picker. I set it to select 50 or 100 songs from a specific playlist. I drag those songs into a new playlist and then I have to go to File>Show Duplicates to get rid of the duplicates that iTunes DJ should have a setting to leave out. Then I delete the duplicates from the playlist (but not the library, of course) and play the resulting playlist. This provides a playlist of mostly higher rated songs without forgetting the occasional lower rated song.
One criticism about the change from Party Shuffle to iTunes DJ: The settings for how many songs to show on the list were once in plain sight within the Party Shuffle playlist, along the bottom of the iTunes window. Now, in iTunes DJ, those settings have to be accessed by clicking the Settings ... button. Hiding the feature like this behind another button makes it unnecessarily harder to use.

I do not want to have to maintain a separate copy of 600 CDs on every computer. I want them all stored on one machine with a big hard drive and streamed to all the rest. Unfortunately, Apple makes that a colossal pain in the tookus. And WHY is there iTunes for MS-WINDOZE, but not for Linux? A Linux port should be trivial since it is essentially another variant of UNIX.
Nobody expects the Spanish Inquisition!!

I have started using Shuffle in a PlayList and found it the closest to the old Party Shuffle.
Just my 2 . . .
