Online music store that works under linux?


Is there a legal online music store that works with linux(sells mp3's or some other format linux plays, as well as the client works w/ linux)? I'm looking into getting an iPod, and I want to find a way to purchase music w/out buying the CDs. Thoughts?

Do any of the native ones sell relatively large name artists? I'd rather not pay for it...but I may end up having to. Other thoughts?

Short answer: No. atleast the one's I mentioned anyway.

These are native though.
Just use gtkpod with the Linux iPod HOWTO
This is were you can get commercial "large name artist" mp3's for it. AllOfMP3.com
