Ok -- so this thread can be about Ubuntu Linux or not. Just wanted to pass along that last night I used DVD Decrypter 3.5.1 -- on Windows machine (the last version released about 5 years ago), and it was still able to decrypt a recent movie I picked up at the video store. Thinking of all the changes that have go on with DVD security, I'm actually quite amazed that a program written over 5 years ago is still able to work!!
I'm just wondering if anyone else has a list of Classic Software. By Classic Software I am referring to software that is no longer maintained or in some cases released. I would rank DVD Decrypter in this category since its still fully functional today working with modern security means.
