Chip [url=http://www.unicom.com/chrome/a/000335.html]writes about emusic.com[/url], and I responded….I’ve had a fair amount of success with listen.com/rhapsody.
It’s a little bit different in that your $14.00 subscription will only let you stream music (alhtough it caches regularly listened-to stuff locally in a proprietary format).
i don’t think they have a non-windows player, but I could be wrong. Their catalog is HUGE, but not exhaustive… I tend to find enough stuff there to make it worth my while (and they make a point of showing off how many and which new albums they put online per day). There is a fairly good “You might like this…” feature for contemporary artists.
If you want to burn you can either burn straight from the audio output (albeit illegally) or you can pay something like .99 cents per song up to $10.00 per cd. However, only certain songs are “eligible” for burning (rights not cleared, etc), and that selection is small.
Overall, it keeps me happy when working with my head down, so I give it a B-.
