Wow... Actual Support! They Know We Exist!

Wanted to buy an album I had just discovered... but didn't want to haul myself to the neighborhood Best Buy. So I wanted to see if the band had an online purchase method. They didn't... but they sold through Amazon. I knew Amazon sold DRM-less MP3's, so I decided to check it out. For whole album downloads you are required to use their lil' download app, so imagine my aghast expression when I saw:

Sweet. Works only on 32-bit Linux (can work on 64 but has problems with library dependencies), but otherwise purchasing was swell. No issues.

Thanks Amazon for realizing Linux users buy music, too!
