Adding a second computer to iTunes Match

So after installation of iTunes 10.5.1 I clicked on iTunes Match:

Choose “Add this computer” and the expected dialog started:

And everything worked just fine – my libraries are merged in iCloud and I can access now all songs from all my devices. I have waited a long time for this – finally no more copying and syncing between devices.
