Original OSNews Interviews Magnatune is the non-evil record label who gives away 128 kbps mp3s of all their artist's songs for free. You can then choose (or not) to purchase DRM-free higher quality versions at a price you set and they allow you to share their purchased songs with 3 friends. The label splits revenues 50/50 with their (carefully picked) signed artists, while these artists keep all of the rights to their music with a non-exclusive contract. Today, we are very happy to feature an interview with John Buckman, the founder and owner of Magnatune, to help us understand better their revolutionary business model.

Yah the site is very nice, they do have a Linux Browser as well but production has stopped it seems although functional.
The 40/Month songs is mice. Probably is fine althogh I prefer unlimited streaming mainly.

The unofficial linux client works fine, as does the mac os x one. Not had any problem downloading things.
