On the minus side, neither Windows 7 nor Linux supports Blu Ray decryption out of the box. It's all a mess of proprietary encryption messiness. If I had known that, I'd've saved $50 and bought a DVD drive.

On the plus side, the drive was on sale, $40 off.

On the plus side, I can now burn backups of my DVD collection again. I can burn either 25gb or 50gb disks.
