    I just put this complete retard on my ignore list. Calling me troll, just because he's too stupid to understand simple sentences? what a moron?
    You stop name calling first, since you started it.

    Next issue is for you to actually KNOW something before trying to answer anything from anyone. Might stop you from giving WRONG or NOT-APPLICABLE answers.

    Not that you can play blu-ray on Linux to begin with, at least without major issues trying to crack the DRM...
    Can't wait for lib-ray to be finished. Not that it will get widely adopted, mind you, but at least we'll have a stand then.

    Yeah, you're right. I missed that too...

    OK, I don't understand either then

    No, that's actually (mostly) covered by my GTX 660:

    And there is the problem - I try to avoid it when I can, for good reasons.
