+A message from the creator of MPlayer, Arpi:
+It was exactly 10 years ago, that I've released first MPlayer version, v0.01:
+Yes, f*cking 10 years!!!! Nov 11, 2000... Time goes on so fast...
+I want to thank you all for the contributions, patches, bugs, docs, testing etc.
+Especially Michael Niedermayer, Fabrice Bellard and Nick Kurshev,
+who made it to be the best & fastest open-source player!
+And sorry Nick, I made a big mistake rejecting your multi-threaded patches.
+Unfortunatelly your idea came too early, nobody (at least me) thought that
+desktop PCs will ever have multiple CPUs... and now that even cheap notebooks
+and netbooks have multi-core CPUs, it would be very useful for HD playback...
+Also special thanks to Gabucino, Pontscho and LGB, for your support in the
+early days, when everybody thought i'm mad, working on video player for linux...
+ps: Albeu, i'll never forgive your playtree patches :)
