I've never had any real problems with iTunes personally,
I did remove all of it's junk from startup,
But if/ when there's an update I had to remember to reactive the junk before doing the update
But yes I finally did get rid of iTunes... because it was all just pestware for something I could just as easily use wmp for the majority of it
I do have a create ringtone app but don't make many anymore so it's not a biggie to loose that one.
No worries not too many people at 7f even use iphones
