A new online music service, Rhapsody!


Check this out

The article specifically mentions linux users as people who will benefit from this.

As long as it works with FireFox it benefits me. But strangly enougth many rivals of Microsoft develop for IE (Intenet Explorer) instead.
Take sony (Playstation vs XBOX) for example:

I have tried it & it works great on Linux. The only reason I have been duel booting w/windows was b/c of Musicmatch. I have since cancelled my Musicmatch subsription & joined Rhapsody. Although it is $10 a month instead of $7, I have found that Rhapsody is much better than Musicmatch in almost everyway. You can practically listen to whatever you want & have not found any bands that they don't have, and I listen to some pretty obscure music. I really hope that Rhapsody keeps on this route, ie. browser based services instead of a downloaded program only for windows, b/c I think this service is great. The $10 monthly fee is completely worth it.
