Steve Jobs' ridiculous iTunes interface

I just spent 6.5 minutes cracking a family member's laptop password in order to demonstrate the dangers of not having whole disk encryption. I then went on to spend 20 minutes+ of my life trying to sync some new music to an iPod Touch with the unbelievably difficult iTunes interface.... After investing a lot of time (that I'll never get back, mind you) I still didn't get the music synced.

What's wrong with this picture!?

Apple and Mr. Jobs: Ask any IT professional what they think about iTunes and it'll echo my experience. We all dislike it in the same way. What gives?
