Bugs & Viruses Tests at Microsoft's Linux lab show that counting the raw number of security updates required by the various operating system flavors is not as meaningful as examining the efficiency of the update process.

"to play DVDs you have to install something illegal?"

Not illegal where I am sitting.

"Works out nicely."

Yes it does. Works a charm, actually.

Ah, but that means Linux is not a viable option for anyone in the US who wants to play DVDs, and do it legally.

Do you guys include that as a point when you're trying to push Linux on some poor, unsuspecting user?

I could reply: "who cares about your piece of shit US" ... but I won't.

There is at least one Linux distribution which includes a US legal DVD player.

However, what I would really challenge is "... is it constitutional for anyone to try to prevent you playing a DVD that you purchased in whatever manner you please?"

I would think you could have a decent case here against the **AA's for "resrictive trade practice" and oligopoly collusion.
