    well, i have been following the development of AnyDVD HD for some time and the product sure seems to be maturing and becoming the standard for reliable HD-DVD and Blu-ray back-up. this is a great step towards giving people their fair use rights back and i am grateful their are talented coders like your selves to develop quality software such as AnyDVD. anyways, i have been a windows user forever but have recently started using Ubuntu as my primary operating system, however making the switch has left me out in the cold so to speak if i want to have the flexibility to backup ALL HD content whether it be HD-DVD or Blu-ray, easily. it seems that AnyDVD HD is the only product cable of doing this so i was wondering why a Linux version is not available.

    Also note: i feel the concept of Slysoft developing an in house DVD playing app capable of playing our content the way we want it with full menu support on Blu-ray and HD-DVD is a really good idea, and i would be more then willing to pay for it, as long as their were versions available for Linux as well as windows.

    Could it be because the only place you can make any money in Penguinville is by selling support?

    You can't sell closed source software because you are immediately branded as 'evil'.

    To repeat what James has repeated ad-nauseum, a Linux version of Anydvd just isn't happening.

    I need another Linux thread like Britney Spears needs another driving accident.
