It now seems to be obvious that the complete source code of not a single
relevant CDM would become available. And perhaps not even binary
versions would become available for Open Source operating systems such
as Linux.

I personally do not care that much about replacing the dependency from
one piece of proprietary software by a dependency from another piece of
proprietary software.

Cheers,
Andreas
