I know that a buddy of mine will salivate actually hearing this. We’re talking about mouth water, eyes light up, and “cuckoo for Cocoa Puffs” type of reaction.
But Amazon’s MP3 store now has a downloader that supports linux. Just take a look at what’s quoted in the requirements of the downloader:
“Linux: Debian 4 Etch, Fedora 8, Open SUSE 10.3, and Unbuntu[sic] 7.10 Gutsy”
Yes, you read that right…. even Ubuntu (or for whomever wrote that help file, Unbuntu). So if you’re one of those die-hard DRM-free fans and just get all starry eyed when you hear about DRM-free mp3s, then here’s some more great news for you. For the rest of the world though? Digital music is still purchased via the church of the colorful fruit.
