I'm working this weekend. Normally when I work a weekend shift, I bring in my laptop, head on over to last.fm and start listening. Not this weekend.

I was so impressed with Spotify last weekend that I've followed the simple Spotify under Wine instructions to see if I could get it working on Linux and what do you know, it works a treat...

It's a little jaggered around the edges, but I put that down to the age of my laptop. The actual performance and sound quality is spot on and it works a treat. So once again, my laptop will be acting as a glorified music player for the entire weekend.
