"Online music streaming provider Spotify has announced a native application for Linux operating systems. This is the first time Spotify has released a Linux client, although some users have previously reported being able to install the Windows application using the Wine emulation environment.

"According to the blog post announcing the development, the app contains most of the features of its Windows and Mac OS siblings.

Also, it appears that displaying adverts has been problematic for the developers, which unfortunately rules out the free-with-ads model available on the other platforms."
