Amazon have just launched Amazonmp3 – DRM-free music in 256kbps MP3 format. (Hopefully they’ll do a patent-free format too soon; there’s no reason why they can’t.) However:
We recommend installing the Amazon MP3 Downloader before your first purchase. It is required for album purchases, and makes downloading songs fast and easy.
Never mind, I can download the individual tracks instead. But what’s this? OK Computer – “Album Only”. So, no OK Computer for me yet. :-(
I wonder how long it’ll be before someone figures out what the Amazon MP3 Downloader does and implements the function for Linux? It can’t be all that complicated; it’s probably just an unzipper.
