Ubuntu 10.10 To Make Sharing Your Favorite Song A Breeze

The Ubuntu One Music Store in Rythmbox is getting a new feature, which will enable you to easily share your favorite song in Twitter, and hopefully help Canonical make some cash in the process. This feature make its  appearance  in Ubuntu 10.10 Maverick Meerkat, which is scheduled to be released this October.

In Ubuntu 10.10, Rythmbox is getting a new “Link Share” button. If you want to share the song you are listening to with others, all you have to do is click on the “Link Share”. A quick search for the track will be performed in the 7Digital catalog. (7Digital is the company behind the Ubuntu One Music Store.) If the track is found, you will be presented with the link to the track and a “Tweet this link” button. Clicking the “Tweet this link” button will send the message to Gwibber, from where you can tweet it.

When someone click on the link in Twitter, he will be presented with the option to buy the track. Of course, he need to be on Ubuntu and have an Ubuntu One account to purchase.

What do you think about this feature? Will you use it?
