Ok.. Have to admit that makes a lot of sense.

That's what I thought..?  I downloaded it for free anyway. You mean
there's a catch?

Anyway, I'm getting distracted:  I think Ubuntu should play mp3's and

they can host instructions on how to do it then they can also go all the
way and put a link on the desktop with some easy clickable links to add
mpeg, mp3 support.
