I was able to use software to rip the Blu-ray to disk and then watch it
with no problems -- so long as you have a fast system.  There are some
linux tools but I haven't been able to get linux ripping to work for me
yet but I have been able to mount Blu-ray drives without a problem.
mplayer will play the blu-ray movie after the aacs is removed.  No menus
and such yet.  Hopefully mplayer will get there eventually.
