Hmmm you know....I work for a company which is a big Micro$oft shop...
Windows NT everywhere...very few of us Linux users (but I know a couple)
I sorta noticed im like that when I start to say something and all of a 
sudden someone finishes my sentance with something about
me not liking Microsoft :) (or praising linux)
It is sorta like when I guy asked to see my resume cuz he was looking for
someone to fill a position which included running and programming
on a Windows NT system....
I replied to him and he said "I caution you that operating systems are
not religions"
You know he is right...they are much more important :)
just so this is not TOTTALLY off topic (tho this is debian user 
discussion list so...I supode we are debian users and
we are discussing...)
anyay...what format was this Movie in?
and...are there any GOOD (and of course free) programs for
playing files of this type for linux (preferably under
X)
I am psecifically thinking .mov format...but others are important too
(I have soxmas.mov on a CD...I don't wanna make a partition 
and install Win95 and duel boot for the sole purpose 
of watching South Park "SPirit of Christmass" but...
if I have to I will (it is worth it ;) )
