DivX has been a decent (not perfect, but still decent) Linux player so
far. We're hoping that with the settlement of GStreamer as the default
media component across desktops on the Linux platform, distributors like
Apple will slowly start to pay attention to us.

However, that's probably a multi-year thing. I wouldn't expect it to
happen instantly. We'll have to live with the (legally questionable)
hacks for now - stuff that unfortunately cannot be shipped in Fedora...
