Spotify for Linux

This is a preview build of Spotify for Linux. As a preview release this version is still unsupported, but we're running it ourselves and will try to make sure it keeps pace with its Mac and Windows siblings, there are issues regarding decoding of local music on the Linux platform so we haven't included support for local files in this version. As we haven't found a reliable way to display ads yet, this version is only available to Spotify Premium and Unlimited subscribers.

Imho better use wine as suggested on official homepage of spotify

I guess you have a point there. The news was dated:

So they not seem to put much work in the Linux version.

Another issue:
"You need a Facebook account to register for Spotify. If you have an account, just log in below to register. If you don't have a Facebook account, get one by clicking the 'create an account' link below."

I don't want a facebook account just for listening to music.

I have always used wine for Spotify (the only thing I do use wine for). Apart from a warning that I appear to be using an unsupported platform, it seems to work just fine.
