Mandriva 2006 to offer built-in online music service

By Derek Sooman on February 25, 2006, 1:15 PM
More and more companies seem to want to get in on the online music and video scene - now Mandriva (as in Mandriva Linux 2006) want to join in too. Mandriva and The Kompany have announced their partnership to provide customers with built-in software to take advantage of legitimate digital content, utilising Mandriva Linux. Mandriva Linux 2006 users can access high quality music and video files at the Mindawn website.

Most online music services tie the user to one or at best two computer platforms: iTunes is only for Mac OS X and Windows; Napster is Windows-only. Mindawn, on the other hand, works with all three major platforms including Linux. With Mindawn's cross-platform client software, users can hear a full preview of the entire song, unlike competing services which only offer brief excerpts.
