iTunes' main advantage, what gave it the edge over existing MP3 player applications at the time it was released, is its database-oriented navigation system. With songs listed not by their filenames and folders, but navigated using the embedded info tags that group them into albums and artists so that they can be browsed more like physical CDs on your shelf, iTunes quickly pointed the way toward a richer world of data organized by its inherent criteria rather than by outdated, generic computing metaphors.
