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.

At the moment I am using a bluethooth connection with my mobile phone to stream music to the receiver. But as you can see if I go for a moment downstairs the connection breaks up. So my idea is to play the music via raspberry (openelec/helix) and control it with my mobile phone as it is possible with the windows PC. This would be moreover great because the raspberry is an opensorce Set-Top Box with a minimal energy consumption (<2W). In this way you can make every receiver cheap playing Spotify. Maybe you can also sell raspberrys with preinstalled Spotify and bring it this way in erveryones living room. So please create an addon!!
