VLC for Windows lets you use your DVD drive for (surprise!) watching DVDs! Imagine that! Most graphic cards driver updates tosses out DVD playback features. We got playback capability only after installing VLC! Thank you guys!
XV back from the dead?
A lot of distros I've tried (even liveCDs) seem to miss out on good ol' XV (since when did it become uppercase, BTW? If you've paid the registration? :-) that back then, it was always a separate d/load after any install I've done. I had stopped downloading after too many formats remained unsupported.
It is a good year for Linux. First, Blackbox gets its first major update in *AGES* `, now XV almost becomes XVI. Or is it XV , Part II? But let me just say, Thank you to all developers involved for your contributions.
