Does anyone know of any advantages/disadvantages of using the Ubuntu One Music Store rather than going directly to 7digital.com to purchase the music?
I can guess that some of the proceeds helps support Ubuntu, and I suppose being able to sync up to 2 GB of songs through the Ubuntu One storage are advantages to the U1MS.
Not needing Rythmbox would seem to be an advantage to go directly to 7digital.com.
I haven't looked into the U1MS yet, but I assume/hope the prices are similar to 7digital.com.
Am I leaving anything out in either list?
The search is janky. Try "Allman Brothers Band". You get 2183 hits of not Allman Brothers. It looks like the search does "OR" instead of "AND". Try "Allman" or "Allman Brothers" to compare.
And adding a music store is just increasing the capability of Ubuntu, not forcing you to pay for added capability.

Think Stand-Alone client, its easy to create our own Ubuntu One Music Store Client!, because of web based thing, see:
WxWidgets Stand Alone Ubuntu One Music Store:
Dont complain its an example, but works.Code:#!/usr/bin/python import wx import wx.html class MyHtmlFrame(wx.Frame): def __init__(self, parent, title): wx.Frame.__init__(self, parent, -1, title, size=(800,600)) html = wx.html.HtmlWindow(self) if "gtk2" in wx.PlatformInfo: html.SetStandardFonts() wx.CallAfter( html.LoadPage, "http://www.7digital.com/stores/default.aspx?shop=496&partner=983") app = wx.PySimpleApp() frm = MyHtmlFrame(None, "Ubuntu One Music Store") frm.Show() app.MainLoop()
This is a signature. It is original.
