Agree that VLC is an excellent media player.
Interesting link Lazarus! Quote from the link:
"With the Windows 7 Starter Edition, restrictions on the netbook-only version of the operating system will be an unwelcome surprise for many netbook buyers, according to a survey published Monday. Sixty-one percent of consumers do not know that Windows 7 Starter lacks some features standard in any version of Windows XP, such as support for multiple monitors, DVD playback -- even the ability to change the desktop image from the Microsoft logo."
Not a lot of people know that.
It makes me appreciate Linux all the more. Put Mint on daughters Acer One (8GB SSD version) and it runs like a dream.
