Yeah. I realise that. The reply I got from then said:

"I understand your concern regarding compatibility of Amazon MP3
downloads with Fedora 11."


"I've passed your feedback along to the Amazon MP3 Music team."

Of course my mail hasn't gone anywhere near anyone who stands a chance
of understanding it.

I've never understoof why you need this proprietary software in order
to buy complete albums from Amazon. Why can't they just give you a
link to a zip file like play.com do?

I predict it'll be fixed about the time Fedora 13 is released.
