Novell and Ximian "Someone just asked me whether, now that Novell's become buddies with Microsoft, I'll be turning away from Novell/SUSE as one of my favorite Linux distributions. My answer is no. I'm sticking with SUSE Linux on both my desktops and servers. Here's why."

If they can get Banshee working with mtp devices (like the Creative M:Vision)

And then these people wonder why they can't get higher market share : they can't even do a Linux friendly device.

whilst they're at it, how about licencing WMA/WMV 9.2 off Microsoft; I don't care about DRM, just give me the ability to encode and decode, and I'll be as happy as Larry

That's a lie. You won't be happy at all. More precisely, you will be happy until 9.3 version is out, and then, you will ask the same thing again.
Besides, only decoding woudl be useful (I don't know if MPlayer decodes it), as WMV 9.2 is one of the worst (if not the worst) codec around, in quality, speed, ...
Of course, if your gadget can play only WMV, you were screwed from the start anyway.
