GNU, GPL, Open Source Linus Torvalds, father of the Linux kernel, has fleshed out his unhappiness with GPLv3 in three recent posts on the Linux Kernel Mailing List. Torvalds previously stated that the kernel will remain under the licensing terms of GPLv2. Yesterday, Torvalds offered his opinion as to where the battle over DRM should take place.

There's a 4th. Watch your movies on something made to watch movies on ;) .

I know people love to do everything on their PC's. But there's still that large group of people who just want to do actual work instead of simply consuming content...

And MP3 playback is fully legal on Linux. So is DVD, if it's not encrypted.

Also I believe I read something about Real paying the license cost for their player?



The thing is. Linux is enough of a niche that no one cares if they write an illegal decss code. And once it's not it'll likely be enough that someone will want to sell a dvd player for it. Or, at least, sell licenses for a decss library (I'd prefer this over the player).
