Hi All:

___I know the title doesn’t mean much but for those reading, I am sure you know exactly what I was hinting at ;) Anyway, here is an article I believe is worth reading for a number of reasons and most of them are close to bearing fruit. Here you go: DVD Video and Linux.

___Enjoy the read.

This is pretty interesting. I'm tempted to throw on a Linux partition to my HTPC and start playing.

Seems it was written by the founder of Redmond Linux corp.. that explains all the references to Redmond Linux! :p

What's truly shocking, is the fellow uses an ISA SB16 - I'm not a hardcore audiophile.. but really!

Well, I should at least be able to playback my Japanese anime DVDs.

The real challenge will be getting 540p/1080i resolutions out of Linux.

I can worry about Region-1 playback after I get 540p working.

This could be fun.

At least Linux is an OS I understand.. the ability to rlogin in case my TV loses sync would be a huge advantage in toying with custom rez's.

I think I'll pop in my spare HDD now and get things rolling!
