I can understand why so many people hate Oracle. Today I had a clash with a retarded decision of theirs, making it impossible to run VMs in VirtualBox if you have a modified uxtheme.dll (which is a theme file that many people who modify their Windows UI need to modify for custom themes). So, in the name of security, Oracle gives you no options. Default .dll or no VMs.

Okay. Not happening. Screw your new versions, I'm downloading an older version, a version where VirtualBox does not attempt to become my new computer overlord.

Really, how hard it is to 1) state it openly somewhere that you should have default uxtheme.dll; 2) make an option for the user to take responsibility and risk his security and continue anyway - instead of crashing the VM with some bogus explanation?!

Why Watching DVDs on Linux is Illegal in the USA

The Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA) makes unlocking cell phones, ripping DVDs, removing eBook DRM, and jailbreaking tablets illegal in the USA. However, there’s another surprise: simply watching a DVD on Linux is also illegal.

This is why Ubuntu and other Linux distributions don’t include out-of-the-box DVD support, forcing you to run a command that downloads and installs libdvdcss from elsewhere – not the Linux distribution’s software repositories, or they would get in trouble.

If you are an American who’s watched a DVD on Linux, there’s a good chance the DMCA makes you a criminal.
