I'm still not that into Apple
Apple Updater showed me two new software updates the other day - "Quicktime" and "iTunes + QuickTime".
Now, remember, I never installed iTunes, and went out of my way to install only QuickTime.
I use QuickTime about once every six months, when there's a movie I just have to see, and it's only available in QuickTime format. [The last such movie was the Thunderbirds trailer for a series that sadly never made it to production.]
And once I did upgrade my QuickTime, selecting not to "upgrade" a non-existent iTunes, it again stuck an icon on my desktop, and another into my system tray, blatantly ignoring my patiently set preferences.
Apple doesn't get it - it's my machine, not theirs, and I'm just not into their software. It's not even as if they made the operating system, and get to decide how it's "supposed" to look.
