I'm considering picking up a Blu-ray drive for a PC that will be used as my home entertainment center, but ideally, I'd like to keep a Linux based OS.

Are there currently any players in the Linux world able to decode and play Blu-ray (preferably with menus, but I know that took a while with DVDs, so it may be the same with Blu-ray).

I think he's looking for a software solution integrated with something similar to Boxee or XBMC. That guide alone makes it sound like it can be challenging to play many discs. – Will Eddins Dec 14 '09 at 15:28

Thanks Will, and furtelwart, you're right. I should have been more clear. Thanks. – Matt Simmons Dec 15 '09 at 17:26
