Weekend rant

Grrr... It's already bad enough that some assholes put out there some DVD's crippled out with DRM, but it really pisses me off when those DRM'd DVD's don't even have a notice telling you that the DVD has DRM.

Assholes. Assholes. Assholes.

    not to mention those DVDs which you *buy* and force you to always watch a one minute advertisement against piracy - no way to skip them

    Can you tell us how the DRM affected you in that specific case ? What did it prevent you from doing ?

  3. Anonymous 1: Yep, I agree that that's bad, even if I don't think that's as bad as you being stopped from seeing a DVD you bought.

    Anonymous 2: Sure, the DRM affected me in a preety simple way: it stopped me from seeing that DVD, since it won't play on Linux, and my only DVD player is my laptop's, and the only OS I have there is Linux.

    There's an easy way around that, mind booster, don't have Linux. It's pretty much useless

  5. I don't want a way around, I want to use my laptop with my DVD player and my Operating System of choice (not only I don't think that Linux is useless, but I also believe it is the best OS out there), and there's no excuse for a "DVD" not playing in my computer - that disc is defective by design.
