Ubuntu One Music Store – first pics!!!

The Ubunutu One Music Store beta is up and running! Check out the pics and let us know what you think. Will you be converted, or is it all just hype?



I was minding my own business enjoying the excellent new iPod ‘drag on and drag off’ functionality of Rhythmbox (though I’m wondering quite how long Apple’s going to let that one play out) and I accidentally clicked the Ubuntu One Music Store button…


It’s up and running! Well, in beta form at least for the time being. I had a quick look through the store and picked out an album I’ve been meaning to buy for some time…


I immediately went to purchase it, by clicking the checkout and signed in to my Ubuntu One account. Although it threw a wobbly when I refused to add my Lucid beta 1 desktop to my One account, I re-ran the purchasing process and it took me straight to billing. Thanks to Rhythmbox and Ubuntu, iTunes – and very probably my Windows dual boot – won’t be darkening my desktop again.

You’ll have to excuse me while download it and put it on my iPod ready for the ride home tonight…
