Was anyone else excited about downloading Qtrax, the free and legal P2P music-sharing source? I was, until I realized that the beta that'll be made available at midnight is Windows only. Oh, and also it has none of the major-label deals that were supposed to make it a legitimate threat to iTunes et al, so it's already starting to look like a nonstarter, especially considering that Amazon's poised to jump into the mix and fuck everyone's day up.

In related and less legal news, the Pirate Bay has announced that its user base has broken the ten million mark, offering up over a million torrents to share, including one that contains the complete Slayer discography and is extremely highly recommended.
