Just download the Zune software and see for yourself. It's pretty cool for discovering new bands with the "related" button and/or "mixview". You can even see top listeners of an artist/album, then check out what they're listening to... the Marketplace is a really nice place for music discovery. Like jkj said you can also listen or stream songs/albums rather than download them if you please. I'd like to see them make Channels and Picks better. Channels are basically programmed playlists of genres. Picks are playlists based on what you listen to. In theory they sound awesome but are rather dull at the moment.

The streaming thing is pretty cool. I was listening to an album the other day in my store and this girl walks up and asks who's playing and I said Ra Ra Riot and she said wow they sound kind of like Rogue Wave so I immediately looked them up and played their newest album. She was like what website allows you to play their album? After explaining I basically pay $5 for unlimited rentals a month ($10 for the 10 free tracks) she was really impressed and said she was going to look into it.
