    Wow basically he got 5 months jail and 5 months home confinement for uploading a film onto the internet. Whatever you think of the crime does that warrent being locked up? Punishment to fit the crime?..Mmm.

    -and then to top it all as an Ubuntu user being forced to use Windows, lol, poor Scott.

    I think I'd have Ubuntu in VMWare opening to full screen to get around this.

    Maybe Linux just is not developed to be remotelly monitored easily, even with WINE, "bad, bad Linux". [​IMG]
