What's So Free About This DVD? Revolution OS
Taken from wired news:
"Go to any gathering of open-source developers and someone is bound to tell you that free software isn't free -- not free as in "free lunch," anyway. Free as in "free speech."
Such politics have sparked another technological transformation, this time freeing a DVD from the constraints imposed by copyright-protection technology."
" The documentary film Revolution OS was released Friday on DVD. The film features interviews with Linus Torvalds of Linux fame; Richard Stallman of the GNU/Free software project; Eric Raymond, author of Cathedral and the Bazaar (a treatise on marketing and open source); Rob Malda of hacker discussion and news site Slashdot; Larry Augustin, co-founder of VA Linux Systems; and others."

Looks like something cool I would like to own and thought you also would like to hear about it.

If dvd's were a free media there wouldn't be global zones (1-4). Unlike VHS there's no excuse like that we use a system that's different than the europeans and such. DVD use should be unlimited anywhere.
