Music service provider MP3.com has today given the rapidly growing number of Linux users the ability to listen to their digital music anytime and anywhere.
The company has released a Linux version of its Beam-it software, which enables registered consumers to store their CD collection digitally on MP3's website. Once the music tracks have been verified and stored on the site, owners can create a virtual jukebox that can be customised and downloaded on to MP3 devices over the Internet.
Michael Robertson, MP3's chairman and chief Executive, said: "We are pleased to offer it to a community that's helping shape the future of computing."
He added that the move was part of the firm's strategy to support the Windows, Macintosh and Linux operating systems.
