well, actually i now see i understood you correctly


the part you are joking about is the stepping stone to dvd -DEcryption!!!


DEcss was written by LINUX users in search of a way to be able to watch dvd's under LINUX!

interview with jon hohanson


and without deccs we wouldnt be here today!


thus, it was all due to LINUX!

Cool see I didnt know that . Now I get why they said Linux user's were doing the ripping . But still the way they said it made it seem like that was where all rips are done , triing to make the open source community look bad and thats what I was laughing about because it seems to me most of the dvd rips done nowdays is done on a windows system .

It's a really old article by the way. April 2000? Heck! I don't think I knew of DivX until the month of October or November at that time.
