Why don't you want to use Wine for these things? I got a track from iTMS
yesterday on Linux, without a copy of Windows, using Wine. It solves
your problem using free software as much as possible, in a convenient
manner, but you'd rather reboot to Windows and use 100% proprietary stuff
instead? That makes no sense.

If it's just some "oh well I think vendors should produce native apps"
then fine, we all love native apps, but Apple (I notice you have a
@mac.com address) is the company that bought Shake then immediately killed
the [profitable] Linux port. They are not going to be doing a
Linux-native port anytime soon, perhaps not ever.

Circle-breaking has to start somewhere ...
