I like to think of myself as "operating system agnostic" -- a recent newcomer to Spotify, I use it on XP and Ubuntu Linux. All my Macs are PPC. Today I obtained the PPC software and installed it, but it will not log in to my account. Is anyone still successfully using Spotify on PPC?

I am still using Spotify on my G4 Powerbook, but in order to keep it working, I have to avoid any updates, and as you can see from my previous posts here, I am trying unsuccessfully to get Spotify management to tell me if it will soon stop.
I imagine that if you are starting now, the version of software available will not work on PPCs.

No, I have the older software, not the current official release, and it does run -- it just will not accept my credentials. The new software will not run on PPC at all. I suspect the reason is because my Spotify account is associated with my Facebook account, and the PPC software will not accept Facebook credentials to log in. I will have to see if I can get my account "dis-associated" from Facebook, and try again.

I am having same problem here. I wish they would just let us use it the way it was-I pay them every month for a service and now it changes. I am not on facebook either-so I suspect that will be the next thing.......
The irony that is I have some music on spotify myself-made with an "obsolete" G5 which is way faster than the latest powerbook I got last year.
Oh well looks like spotify have lost a customer-and Ive lost a LOT of hours making up playlists!

I use this version of Spotify on my G$ Mac. Works fine for me, though I am not on Facebook. Whether that would make any difference I do not know.
