Hello folks, a colleague of mine asked me if I could install Linux on his friend's laptop. Her current laptop OS is a pirated Windows. She wanted to replace this with a legit OS at no cost, which bring us to Linux.  I have no problem with it, in fact I will even give away a free Pardus 2008 install CD as backup.

My concern is that, the laptop owner will be going to the US to work and she will take the laptop with her. Since Pardus's media players can play encrypted DVDs would this not bring her trouble in the US? What issues, if any, would she be concerned of as a regular Linux user (Pardus in particular) in the US? Is it really true that playing encrypted DVDs on Linux in the US is illegal?

Thanks for your thoughts on this matter.

Hello,

I don't know.

Perhaps the Wiki can give you an answer.  Wink
