LinuxPR: Great International DVD Source Code Distribution Contest Announces Results

Jan 20, 2000, 00:19 (1 Talkback[s])

"If you use the World Wide Web, you may already have DVD-viewing software for Linux on your computer and not realize it, even if you don't have Linux or a DVD player."

"That's because Linux users and Internet experts showed support for free distribution of DVD viewing software for Linux. They participated in an Internet contest aimed at developing innovative methods to distribute the software -- and some methods they developed hide the code in ordinary, harmless web images and sounds."

"Two projects deserving of special mention are Freenet and Copyleft," said Don Marti, publicity director of the Silicon Valley Linux Users Group."
