Not a Real fan


By Jason Meserve, NetworkWorld.com, 03/09/04

Tomas Jogin is not a fan of the RealNetworks player (be it RealPlayer 10 or RealOne):

The one application that I try to stay away from more than any other is Real Player. Or Real One, or whatever the hell they call it this week. If Real Player, Real One, whatever, just did what it's supposed to do; which is to play video streams, then that'd be great. Unfortunately, playing video streams is only a very small aspect of what Real Player does; Real Player, most prominently, is a small bastard with inferiority complex and delusions of grandeur, not too different from Napoleon.

Read the whole rant here, with follow up here and here.
