In short, the simple uninstall of 11 and install of 10 is not as simple as your article describes.

Apple just made me cross to the "dark side", with this release they just gained another HATER, till my iPod expires :-( after that NO MORE iStuff of any kind.

The recommendation would be, before uninstalling 11, export your playlists, library, etc... then, when 10 gets re-installed, import your previously exported files.. it's time consuming but the only way to get your playlists as before..

I have just been there and downloaded iTunes 10.6.3 which was the previous one to Version 11.
I am currently running Mountain Lion.
The previous version is definitely on the Apple Site.

The current iTunes library is iTunes Library.itl
The previous iTunes library you want is iTunes Library <date>.itl with the latest date.
To replace, delete My Music\iTunes\iTunes Library.itl file, then copy Previous iTunes Libraries\iTunes Library <date>.itl to My Music\iTunes and rename to remove the date so it looks like iTunes Library.itl.
Then uninstall 11 and reinstall 10.6.3?
Is that right?

I followed your instructions to download from 11 to 10 itunes, to the tee except that when I got to the previous library , I could copy the previous date but couldn't paste the date onto the "library" for retyping in Library intl The same message comes out again" can't read as I have newer version". Help !
I changed simply because the 11 has really messed up my itunes library; many songs are missing and the so called albums are all eschewed ! Any advice is appreciated. Thanks.
