I don't know if anybody has seen anything about Freespire but it will
- apparently - be capable of playing commercial DVDs. It is the long
awaited FOSS version of Linspire. May be I read the blurb incorrectly
but it certainly sounds as though it will have 'full' DVD playback
capability. Now, if this is the case, how are they doing it? Would
it be possible to incorporate this method into SuSE? I say that last
bit with the assumption that there is no grey area when it comes to
legality issues, as there are with libdvdcss.
I am only human, please forgive me if I make a mistake it is not deliberate.
Xmas may be over but, PLEASE DON'T drink and drive you'll make it to
the next one that way.
