After that fiasco at mp3.com over illegal copies of CD's (I *never* approved of that so-called "beam-it" or "my-cd" concept, when he has such a good community going for him--couldn't he have just waited awhile for it to grow into something really cool?) I would not spend a penny on his ventures.
I wonder: where will people play who are interested in free music now, because of that mess? Vivendi seems to be pushing the mp3.com community and supporters into buying "regular" commercial so-called-music....
Similarly, what will happen to Linux because of such a goof-off? If this "people's Linux" or "comsumer Linux" flops, how long is it going to take for us to scrape off the egg?
