Turn On Half-Star Ratings In iTunes

All-things-Apple weblog TUAW points out a simple Terminal trick to enable half-star ratings in iTunes for finer grained control over your iTunes rating system. The same functionality is available with the simple tick of a checkbox in previously mentioned OS X tweaker Secrets, but if you don't want to install another preference pane for this simple hack, this Terminal tweak will do the job:

defaults write com.apple.iTunes allow-half-stars -bool TRUE

I did a little searching without any clear results, so if anyone knows how to enable half-stars on the Windows side of the fence, let's hear it in the comments.

    Is there any way to do this on foobar?

    wow this is great. i have always wanted 1/2 stars on itunes for some fastidious reasons.

    unfortunately, i am operating on windows so if anyone can find the windows hack that would be brilliant.

    also, when you change the stars on itunes will it show up on the ipod?
