The Windows Media plugin on a default Ubuntu system points to Totem. Something is weird here.

A screenshot will defeat IRM if you have an untrustworthy trusted user.

comment How to prevent an email from accidentally being forwarded?
This is just really DRM on email. Once the user has the content (screenshot if copy/paste "disabled)...it's easily forwarded

comment Connect to Linux by name rather than IP
+1 for mDNS / Avahi. Avahi is installed by default on many distros, but may be a package install for yours.

comment Connect to Linux by name rather than IP
This is because of Avahi, a Zeroconf daemon that is installed by default. It's not going to help him on Windows, unless he has a client due to some other reason (maybe iTunes installs one? I can't say.)

My network does this because of Avahi (Zeroconf networking). I do not know the viability of a Zeroconf client/server on Windows.

comment Put monitor to sleep when locking screen in Ubuntu
Did you make sure that the option was committed? Leaving the dialog option & changing the value doesn't commit it. Beyond that, I'm out of ideas.

comment Ubuntu 9.10: find video card drivers for Nvidia Geforce 320M graphics card?
@Ignacio: At least the binary blob for Nvidia is in the package repos...No one packages Creative soundcard drivers, unless they've finally opened (I heard rumors to that effect ages ago).

I am unsure, having never used Project Tuva. You may have luck asking them if they use the DRM.

Malware isn't going to cause Ubuntu to not mount a filesystem - filesystem errors, however, will.

comment Why Do We Have USB Mice When Serial Mice Work Perfectly Fine?
@Lord Torgamus: I would, and have, and my equipment survived. That being said: RS-232 was designed to be hot-pluggable and sometimes worked as such (see my answer for more details). PS/2...was most definitely not.
