Yeah, and we all know how mega COOL and super stable and perfect the Linux
DVB apps are, right ?

And how Linux *rocks* for drivers for all the dvb stuff out there, and how
you have to waste ur entire life compiling stuff to work properly, right ?


Please, if you don't like Windows/etc.. fine, but don't come here trolling
with your bullshit that makes no sense.

Look thru the list, and DVB is a total disaster in linux, in comparison to

Windows is not perfect, but it's certainly a better experience than it is
now in Linux.
