iTunes Music Store Faster on a Mac?

I’ve been meaning to throw this question up here for a while. Is it just me, or is the iTunes Music store a hell of a lot faster on a Mac than it is on Windows?

While I like the convenience of iTunes, I absolutely dreaded hitting the music store on my Windows machine. It felt like it took forever to get any decent results. Since moving to the Mac though, the Music Store responds extremely quickly and I have no qualms about doing searches and browsing around now.

I’m just curious – has anyone else that has both types of machines noticed this behavior, or is it just my mind playing tricks on me?

  1. I was actually thinking that they may be giving preferential treatment (higher priority) to those who are on their software/hardware platform.

  2. I agree with the last part of the entry. I have used the iTunes Music Store on Windows and it is slower than OS X. I have also used it on my G3 iMac and it is just as fast.
