Multimedia, AV "With the release of Windows Vista, using your PC to watch and record TV has become a whole lot easier. Now, for the first time, Windows Media Center comes bundled with Home Premium and Ultimate versions of the standard Desktop operating system. However, Vista is pricey, and its form and function are of course dictated by Microsoft. If you want full control over your Home Theater PC, and don't want to have to pay Microsoft for it, then Linux is a more than capable alternative base for building a system of your own."

In the mean time, you want people to obey GPL, then you better start obeying MP3, DVDCSS, AACS and AC3 licenses.

I don't see anybody ponying up money to purchase "Real" licenses and provide them to the Linux Media Center users.
