comment Why can't you create/open multiple instances of iTunes?
I was going to suggest that it was the presence of the LSMultipleInstancesProhibited key set to true in the Info.plist inside the application bundle, but iTunes doesn't appear to have that set. Launch Services may hard-wired to to look for the com.apple.iTunes CFBundleIdentifier and not allow a second instance. You could try changing that manually in a second copy of the app bundle to see if it allowed it to launch. But I'd make backup copies of your library database beforehand. :-)

No need to restart; you just need to relaunch the apps in question.

comment Can Steam games be available to the Guest account?
@Nathan G: In Windows, when you switch from one user to another, Steam does exactly what I described: the first instance of Steam in the original user account quits, and a new instance of Steam starts in the second user account. Hence, no DRM issue. All I meant by my statement was that with about 10 lines of code, you could achieve the same type of behavior in OS X.

comment How to reduce photos in iPhoto while keeping metadata?
Also, what specifically do you mean by metadata? Just standard image metadata, like EXIF stuff, or also iPhoto-specific type things like faces, locations, etc.
