One: If you really want QuickTime & Sorenson start sending emails to your
"post IPO" distro vendor, Apple obviously do not see a viable market segment
in non-server products [There is a port of QuickTime Streaming server
knocking around], for Linux so the ball is back in the overvalued Linux
Apple appear to be aggressively licensing QuickTime property's to serious
players as has been seen from the deal with RealNetworks, if they would
listen to RealNetworks it's not a stretch to see them listening to a Linux
vendor as long as the price is right.
It's up to distro vendors to put that inflated stock to work filling gaps in
their offerings, the community cannot be expected to pick up all the slack.
Two: Wait and see how far the Apple/Real agreement goes, Apple may allow
Real access to some of it's technologies which may migrate into Real Player
for Linux, if it's going to happen it will probably be announced this month
