To all Spotify desktop users out there:
There should be collapse buttons on main/apps and collection just like on the playlists. This would make it easier to choose what you want higlighted. It is also a problem on laptop and other monitors with a 16/9 ratio where there is limited vertical resolution.

I've bought a Raspberry Pi, and I plan to make a portable Linux-based Spotify-computer (I'll use Debian, since Ubuntu does not support RPi).
Spotify woun't run on RPi, probably because it's made for x86-platform.
And despotify is not an option, need the complete Spotify client. ;)
For this project I have the RPi, Lenovo LT1421 USB-monitor (great monitor BTW), battery and PSU and of course FiiO E7 DAC for high sound quality. The only thing that's left is the software, and Spotify is not compatible with ARM/RPi.
A phone or tablet don't have good enough sound quality or functionality, so please, make Spotify RPi compatible! :) I also want to have Spotify in my car, but I have to wait until it's supported.
It is also important to support Linux I think, which is a great OS, but is in the shadow of Windows and iOS. To all of you that haven't tried Linux, try it. It rund much faster and better than Windows and uses much less resources.
I have been using the latest Linux Client preview for a while and it runs very well even though there are some ocassional bugs. However, the app still doesn't integrate completely with the Gnome desktop, specially 3.2-3.4. Here are some small ideas that I had about how to make the linux client integrate better with Gnome:
When the app is on fullscreen mode (maximized), it should hide the window title bar since it's wasting screen space and Gnome already provides the title of the app that is currently running on the status bar. Example mockup: http://dl.dropbox.com/u/1477788/Spotify_fix.png
The app should also support using the keyboard media keys
