Microsoft’s online music store went beta a few days ago. I poked around a bit. Just like Sony Connect, the selection in jazz is rather lacking, but I suppose thats probably to be expected.

Songs run $.99 per, right in line with Apple, and full albums are $9.99. Files are WMA, all nice and spiffy with their DRM built right in. The only nod to useability/freedom is

MSN Music allows you to play your music on up to five Windows PCs, burn playlists to CD up to seven times, and transfer to an unlimited number of portable audio devices.

I’d tell you more, but that would mean I’d have to use MS Passport/Hotmail, and I’d rather peel off my toenails than voluntarily join the spam/virus sewer known as Hotmail.
