Hands on with iTunes 11

It would be nice to have a step-by-step write up for these procedures.
I really enjoy my Macworld subscription & I am counting on them to help us decipher this new puzzlement !
Looks like its time for a new book:
"iTunes 11 - The Missing Manual".

Imagine if Windows 8 took up the whole screen and "served" Excel in a little window. People would get pretty pissed.
iTunes11 is trying to be bigger than the simple server it is supposed to be. It is only a dashboard. Imagine if your car started to move the controls around.
No, iTunes 11 is not an improvement. Pop-up menus and little features scattered around the screen is not helpful. The old straight forward interface where everything was structured in a clean an logical manner was better. Apple knew this, that's why they left it alone for so long. I just hope that they do not fire the manager in charge of the new version, like they did with the Map App guy. I suspect his days are numbered however...
I am not so worried about the bugs in iTunes 11 (such as the fact that it keeps loosing connection to my devices). Apple will fix these bus in the next releae.
This question is more important for me.. when I go back to the old version how much longer will it still work? Does anyone have an idea?

I'm not sure what you are referring to. I've got a 13" Macbook Air and iTunes doesn't take up my whole screen and I can easily close the window entirely or switch to the mini-player if I want a smaller interface.
