That's as may be... however, it does seem to be ignoring those of us who happen to want video output in a window (as I do now with vdr & gxine). If there's any taintware involved in that, I for one don't want it. (And I couldn't care less about it right now, at least for my own use - there's no terrestrial HD broadcasting here and there won't be until 2012 at the earliest, that being when analogue transmission is switched off.) > So all the boycott stuff is for freaks only. Right... so consumers are either dumb or freaks... remember that you're one too :-þ [snip] -- | Darren Salt | linux or ds at | nr.
