Well the kids have grown up and they want to download music. In the past I've used my pc with the 360Share program but I've recently moved the family to the IMac connected to a soon to be installed D Link DNS-323 NAS. Though I have no problem with ITunes managing my music I do have a problem buying it through ITunes, and 360Share doesn't work on the MAC.
What other music download services, free or not, have some of you used with the MAC? Please tell me the good, bad and ugly.

Thx

May I ask why you have a problem with getting your music through iTunes? Is it the new pricing? In my experience, it has been a great music store - it's fast, reliable, easy to navigate and contains a lot of music.

I prefer a flat pricing model. Pay "X" for unlimited downloads.
