Comment of the Day - December 1, 2005 - Legal DVD Players for Linux

It's unfortunate that some announced DVD players
for Linux are available only for embedded applications, like dedicated
hardware. They don't help Linux desktop endusers. However, there are at
least two "legal" solutions to my knowledge - one is bundled with
Turbolinux version 10F, which includes a version of Cyberlink's
PowerDVD. It works, but is a bit buggy. The other is an add-on for
Linspire, available for a paid download from their "Click-N-Run"
repository. Windows users pay for DVD players like WinDVD or PowerDVD;
if such were available to add to any Linux distribution, some folks
would pay for it, especially if its installation were painless.
