Quote taken from one of my regular forums

"The downside of Mint Linux is that i am fairly certain it will be shut down by some legal action. they are openly supporting what some would call "illegal" activities."

I think this guy is "spreading some FUD" (far, uncertainty and doubt)

It's just the same as enabling Multiverse repo in Ubuntu I would have thought.
You gave a good answer here 900i.
Beyond this, we all have to manage that Linux keep its freedom and tolerance properties and never become a multi guru sect :cry:

If the owners want we take off the proprietary stuff from Mint, they only have to say it, we can remove that and we can create a solution for this(for example, an automatix for Mint, or CNR), really this is not a problem, I think.

Then they also have to shut down PCLinuxOS, SabayonLinux, etc.

Mint isn't the first or last to do this.

I my opinion that's the best solution for Mint. Having its own "kind of automatix" repository. One click installation and peace of mind.
