Re-Imagining Linux Platforms to Meet the Needs of Cloud Service Providers
"I came across this car called "Junior" that is computer driven.
I don't mean to be a stickler but the video showing the car driving
around a controlled course and such being shown on the huge monitor
to one side of the car, is being played in Windows Media Player of
all things which means that the laptop the video is coming from is
running Windows. I'm sorry, but if I was an exhibitor at a Linux
Expo (say LinuxWorld for example) I would at least take the time to
get the video about my product to be shown in something, anything
other than WMP. I try not to be easily offended by such things but
come on! I am at LinuxWorld, at least show me the video in
Kaffeine, VLC, Xine or any other of a dozen video players that are
accessible in Linux! Sorry for the rant."
