Ah well I just read what's going on with Mandriva at the moment this
makes me thinking about linuxtv again.
While this crowd is playing a shitty game against each other, in
Windows _everything's_ available. Now planing to replace around 17.000
copies of Linux with Windows at one side seriously has a positive
impact of supported hardware at least. Ah well continue to play
against each other.
