Illegal in the United States...

Looks nice, but of course it's ability to play back encrypted DVDs is a violation of the Digital Millenium Copyright Act (DMCA) and therefore this distro is illegal in the US...

I really wish distros would stop shipping with DMCA violating and/or known patent encumbered codes such as multimedia codecs. Allowing the users to easily install them from the internet is one thing, but one should be able to use and distribute a distro legally without modification.
