Ubuntu One Music Store, one of the big features in upcoming Ubuntu 10.04 goes into public beta. Users and testers of Lucid Lynx can give a hand to the developers of this new feature by using (buying and downloading music) and giving feedback to the developers. The hope is to drive lots of feedback that will help build a more stable and flawless Ubuntu One Music Store by the time Ubuntu 10.04 is finally released.
To help you in the test, Ubuntu One Music Store has free music for you, you don’t have to spend your monies unless you really want to. Free MP3s available for download in the store are found at 7digital UK free mp3 downloads and USA free mp3 downloads .
The MP3s you download are dropped into your Ubuntu One file sharing account space, thence synchronized across all your computers with Ubuntu One. Remember Ubuntu One can also be accessed via the Ubuntu One website, just in case you’re not running a Ubuntu.
