    I don't run any Apple software on my PC.

    I have seen numerous complaints about iTunes (on SevenForums).

I have each album tagged to one of about 50 genres.
    I have albums sub-folders in Artist folders, because I have multiple albums with the same titles.

    I assume that you incorporate the artist name with the album name, to avoid clashes when albums have the same names (e.g. "The Best Of").

    Yes indeed. Since Windows won't allow the same file name, I simply have the name of the album and the artist in parentheses.

    I have to have iTunes since I have an iPhone, I've never liked it, but lately I've been using it to keep track of all my music, and it does a good job with it. also, it burns CD-Text onto Music CD's I make, and my other burning program, CD Architect is to old and does not write CD-Text. My other CD making app, Wavelab, hasn't run in Vista, 7 and 8.

    The only other app I use that can sort out a library is Foobar, but you have to find a foobar theme that shows your library in a sane manner.
