Now it's out in the open one wonders firstly about the new player and it's possible effects upon ones system( given they are teamed up with sony the rootkit kids ) and also the international access pricing formats and zone issues of the content ..at the moment zone 1 US content cannot play on zone 2 european machines and the content itself has steep price differences depending on the zone in which one lives ..ie:we pay more than the USA
If the system is zoneless "0" or open source that will be interesting as France s about to make the possesion or the programmation or the distribution or the developement or the posting about or the linking to or the merely talking to your neighbour about open source or linux madia players illegal and doing any of the aforementioned things punishable by upto 3 years imprisonment..yes owning linux will become illegal here on january 17th if the next law sponsored by Sony and Vivendi universal gets through the chambre des deputies..
