The Ubuntu One Music Store Now Online
Just missing the beta deadline, Ubuntu has today placed the version 10.04 of the new Music Store online for testing.
Tracks will cost between 77 and 99 cents. For premium labels, available in USA, UK and Germany only, Ubuntu are asking 1.49 Euros (Euro Shop)
per song. The first 60 seconds of each track can be heard as a teaser. With a seamless integration in Rhythmbox, the quality of the MP3 recordings
lies between 192 and 320 Kbs, regardless of price.
Users actually wishing to buy music, should be a little patient. The current version comes with hold-ups at the checkout, sometimes causing Rhythmbox to crash. Probably best then to wait for the stable final version.
Spotify on Ubuntu 10.04Are there ways around this blocking of Spotify?? Wine and Spotify should work beyond Ubuntu restrictions????
Ubuntu one music storeUbuntu one music store may be OK for those that want to buy music but it is at the cost of those who prefer Spotify !
Spotify is now a banned item in ubuntu 10.04 beta,it will not complete installation cos they say it is not a safe item ! ! !
It may seem cynical to say that ubuntu have discovered that Spotify is no longer safe at just the same time as ubuntu music store is launched?
No other distro to my knowledge has any problem with Spotify and it is appalling that a distro that says it prizes free software should have such dual standards when cash income from paid for music comes above free choice !
Cannonical are Hypercrictal,its all about money !
