With the release of 12.04, Ubuntu will be moving back to Rhythmbox as the default music player. Will Canonical still give Banshee a share of revenue from Ubuntu One Music Store purchases made using Banshee after 12.04? Will Canonical still take a share of revenue from Banshee's Amazon plugin?

I know that in previous releases (11.04 and 11.10), they shared revenue with both Rhythmbox and Banshee. I'd be interested in knowing what happened in 10.04 and 10.10.

Please provide the information you have that suggests that Canonical is changing its stated arrangements regarding sharing revenue with developers of software installed through the Ubuntu software Centre. Otherwise this question is based upon speculation. Purchase a song through Banshee and Banshee developers will get a share of the revenue. Purchase a song through Rhythmbox and the Rhythmbox developers will get their share. Why should you think any differently? –  grahammechanical Feb 13 '12 at 14:29
