I've been using Ubuntu as my main system since 7.04 with a few short breaks using Windows or Fedora because of temporary hardware/software incompatibilities. I support FOSS projects like Ubuntu for a number of reasons but the biggest one is that the software works and it works well--often better than the non-free alternatives.

I'm no guru but in my travels I've learned a thing or two about using/debugging/fixing problems in Ubuntu which I'm always happy to share with the community. If it hadn't been for the help I've received from the Ubuntu community over the past few years I probably wouldn't have gotten past my first month of using it much less to where I am today!

comment How do I import Amazon MP3s with Banshee and the new Amazon Cloud Player?
Andre- One reason I like Banshee over Rhythmbox is because I can do everything (buying, downloading and importing) from within Banshee and in a matter of a few clicks. However, if you could post an answer with your method I think that others might find it useful.

Andre- glad that it helped. However it sounds like either Amazon caved or the Banshee team found a workaround as it is working for me again without the workaround. One of the other answers suggests that if you use the updates from the Banshee Team PPA it will work again normally. You could try that.
