    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.

    The only ontopic I can think of is - maybe WINE?

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