    As for copy protection i really see it as an evil that can't be avoided. Theft is so common these days that people don't even see it as unacceptable. That being said I'd prefer to see changes to the copy right laws that put a time limit on copy protection along with reasonable time periods of protection.



    No operating system is perfect but what is obvious to me is that Linux has fewer glaring issues compared to Windows. What the Linux community should be targeting with respect to code quality and features is Mac OS. Mac OS is the real benchmark when it comes to usability and good design. Windows is nothing more than a minimal corporate OS, with just enough capability to get the job done.
    The second half of your post is the dumbest thingI've ever read from you and it's surprised me because I generally agree with you, but this.... Wow, so dumb...

      This thing is pointless: there would always a way to pirate video, making it harder has limits: at some point, it starts to bring more inconvenience to legit users than inconveniences to pirates, And I'm afraid that point has been passed long ago.
      Yep, and at the very barest minimum you'll always be able to point a camera at your screen. You might not get pixel perfect recording, but damn good recording.

        Just kidding. I wonder how effective it will be to prevent people from ripping a stream.
        You can always point a camera at your screen, maybe not pixel perfect, but damn good. And that has the added benefit of being a completely new stream with -none- of the restricted sources metadata. So yeah, it's completely ineffective.

          A camrip damn good? Are you serious?
          Atrocious sound first, and within 5 seconds into the logos displaying initial bit you know you wasted 2-5 GBs from your monthly quota.
