    at the same time, the movie studios will take months getting back and require a whole lot of hand holding hen you ask "ah yeah, we dynamically rotate our keys every 5 minutes rather than just encrypting everything ones with the same one - is that cool?"

    I thought that Linux and open source software was about freedom, but I see now that the freedom is fading with the huge Hollywood greed.
    you still have freedom, you can choose to use it or not. no need for hyperbole

    hrm - first thought - ensuring that in a secure environment that all comms are secure is cool.

    second though - can SSH/TLS be classed as secure for a remote display ?

    Can't they spend their time on something that people actually want?
