Mmmm, just out of curiosity (as I don't own a BD player neither have Blu-
ray discs to play) but, do you mean there is currently no way to play Blu-
ray in Linux? :-?

Or just to put it in other words, what is the current status of the Blu-
ray technology in Linux?

It seems there is a project¹ that allows viewing such media type, but
does it work nice, has any drawbacks...?
