Multimedia, AV This is a problem I hadn't yet heard of, so it fascinates me to no end. We all know VLC, right? It's one of the best video players out there, and while I myself generally just install the K-Lite Codec Pack, VLC is definitely a good alternative - and pretty much the norm on Linux. They're having a problem, though: malicious folk are bundling VLC with malware, offering it up for download as the official VLC, and misleading users in the process. Not only does this violate the GPL - it's pretty damn low, too.

I would like to add this to the end of manifesto:


p.s. We don't care about human freedom and morality - all these are just crap. If something works better for us, it doesn't matter if it hurts society or it's moraly wrong. We are so open minded that we are interest only in tehnical aspects of software.
