    I don't know if they are planning to backport it.

    I would most likely have considered purchasing music there (it looks like a really nice store) if they had offered lossless quality and/or high quality OGG/Vorbis files.
    Fortunately for me I don't own a portable OGG/Vorbis player, so it doesn't bother me.

    Re: Hows everybody liking the Ubuntu One music store?

    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.

    Sounds like a good candidate for filing a bug.

    I don't see why people think Ubuntu cannot be involved in anything that is even remotely commercial. Yes, they are an open-source community, but their main goal is to introduce a capable operating system to people for absolutely free. That doesn't mean they have to give us free music or free laptops or whatever else you can think of.

    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:

    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()
    Dont complain its an example, but works.

    For starters, legality.
