Where did I say "there's a DRM-free movie store"?

Let me quote to you what you quoted of mine:

There are other stores that sell music and movies legally. If you bought from Apple or anyone else something that's controlled by DRM your goods are subject to that DRM. If you bought someone else's DRM-encumbered stuff, it's not at all impacted by this. If you bought non-DRM stuff, it's not impacted by this. If you upgrade to a halfway recent OS, you're not impacted by this.

"Or from which store should one have lawfully purchased movies instead?"
  ^^^^^ That part of the fucking question right there. ^^^^^

If you bought someone else's DRM-encumbered stuff, it's not at all impacted by this. If you bought non-DRM stuff, it's not impacted by this.

If you have the money to throw at a huge library of DRM-encumbered stuff, spend $80 on Windows 7 for goodness sake.
