Will it yet again be another addon hack for Linux, or will they actually release specifications and stuff to players like xine, on how to play the new movies coming out on blueray.
As if they don't most likely, hackers will do the same as in the past, in an article of linuxformat march. Where they should have the right to play on it. This probably allowed all of the region code hacking on a massive scale.
If they initially allow linux users to use the latest high definition styled dvd discs, it will cut the attempt on piracy i would imagine.
Still it shouldn't be a defacto standard that it should play on macs and windows.
