    Default CyberLink DVD Player In Ubuntu Store

    According to this article, http://www.computerworld.com/action/...9&pageNumber=1 Canonical has licensed DVD playing software from Cyberlink (PowerDVD),

    From the article:
    The Cyberlink PowerDVD software sells for $49.95 in the Ubuntu store and allows users to play commercial DVDs on the latest version of Ubuntu Linux, v8.04. OpenGL driver support for graphics hardware is also required.
    At first I had a rant here about the pricing and such, but apparently that's the standard price for the DVD playing version 7. I'm not sure if I know anyone who's paid full price for a copy- tons of OEM computers come with it, and nearly every DVD drive comes with a copy of it.

    Something rubs me wrong about this though- I feel ripped off here.
