OSNews, Generic OSes Spotify has made a (Qt-based, but with extra gnome-support package) Linux client available for download. The client is available only to premium subscribers - reported to be because they haven't found a reliable way to show ads yet. It also doesn't support local file playback yet, but then this port was built "during hack days and late nights".

Probably because a .deb installs only if certain checked requirements are satisfied. Providing a .tar.gz that 'should' work anywhere means for the company to expect a rise in the number of support requests for various installation problems.
