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."

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

Ehm, iPod work'ish; the problem with Linux companies is that they're unfocused; they seem to drift from project to project rather than just knuckling down and focusing on getting their 'selection' working and integration properly.

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.

Babe, 9.2 has been the audio standard for quite some time; I want CODEC 9.2 support; its the default in Media Player 9.0, 10.0 and 11.0.

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, ...

Mp3 quality absolutely shit when it comes to variable compression rate; I compress my music at 135-215kbps variable, and it is far superior to using mp3 varibale at 320kbps - instead of senselessly bashing Microsoft, how about accepting that maybe, *shock horror*, Microsoft has actually created a good product!
