Linux coders are the ones providing true interoperability between Windows OS, and Office. Each time MS break something on purpose to delay people moving to Linux, the Linux coders work and fix it. Linux is a prime example of the power of community development and open source software such as the avcware blu ray ripper. Maybe the fact that it is not attractive enough for the mainstream is a good thing.
Linux users, think fast, think in RedHat, Suse and a bunch of Open Source projects that turn their way to the Commercial line. But there are also Open Source projects that wouldn’t be successful if they were commercial, think in Firefox, in Open Office, and more. Linux would never amount to much they said, the reason was simply that they couldn’t think outside of the Microsoft mindset and look at it now. We are in an ever dynamic world with shifting fundamentals and it’s big software’s refusal nay inability to change that’s dragging others down. Linux and opensource is the only way to go. We use Ubuntu because of the distro with great support (Fedora, OpenSUSE, Ubuntu, …) we have found currently Ubuntu to be the only one that just does everything and does it well however it still lacks a decent blu-ray ripper software.

this is for those of you that dont know what shareware is and whats the difference between this and the other freeware blu ray ripper software out there.
Shareware is software that you can try before you buy. They are all copyrighted, but you can download them freely and try them out. Shareware is a distribution method, not a type of software. You should find software that suits your needs and pocketbook, whether it’s commercial or Shareware. Shareware is inexpensive because it is usually produced by a single programmer and is offered directly to customers; thus, there are practically no packaging or advertising expenses. Note that shareware differs from public-domain software in that shareware IS copyrighted.
Next ill be explaining freeware and opensource..

First post Let me start off by saying that this place is awesome and I am so glad I found it. With a blog I get a wiki as well where I can post the infor about the blu ray software that I develop.
K so this is my software development blog and I will be posting any updates I have here. I will be working on an opensource project of mine. I already have a blu ray ripper blog but the software I will be making will be free and will be opensource. The open source decision was a difficult one but I finally went with it because of various reasons. Some of which I will be discussing here.
OpenSource is now enough of a threat to companies like Microsoft that Bill Gates felt obliged to try pushing some old Cold War patriotic buttons by lashing out at the “hippies and communists” the movement relies on. Microsoft has encouraged companies like SCO in their high-drama attempts to spread fear, uncertainty and doubt (FUD) over the commercial use of OpenSource code. Opensource is indeed more “open.”.But this is the reason it is MORE secure than proprietary software, not less secure. When security flaws are found, they are spotted and repaired quickly. OPENSOURCE is not responsible for lost or damaged material. I also read something interesting regarding a similar blu ray project development over at a french blog. I linked to it, you can check it out.
