It's silly enough that I can share my tunes across my home network yet I can't share them with someone on the same machine. Despite keeping all my music in /Macintosh HD/Users/Shared/Music, I still have to wander from account to account adding each new CD or Itunes Music Store purchase to each user's library just so that we can share _our_ (defined in the strictest sense) music. Surely your Itunes library on the local machine should show up in my Itunes window just like any other network-shared Itunes library?Link/Wayback Machine snapshotYou cannot open the application "Itunes" because another user has it open.No, not OK.
Ask the other user to quit the application, then try again.
Should I mistakenly leave "my copy" of Itunes open and wander off for a bit, there's no music for anyone until my return. No music for you! Nobody but an administrator capable of killing off other logins and processes has the ability to rectify this situation. Should every user really need to be an administrator to truly share this multi-user environment?

I write books. My latest is a YA science fiction novel called Homeland (it's the sequel to Little Brother). More books: Rapture of the Nerds (a novel, with Charlie Stross); With a Little Help (short stories); and The Great Big Beautiful Tomorrow (novella and nonfic). I speak all over the place and I tweet and tumble, too.
