Re: My Time With Fedora 8
This is also an option in Fedora, however the distribution will not package or point a user to anything (a) nonfree or (b) possibly patent encumbered from official sources. Technically, to use the codecs fluendo provides you do need to pay for the license. If you use the livna repositories or the freshrpms repositories (think of them as a mix between universe and medibuntu) you can get the codecs in the same ways as Ubuntu (w32codecs, libdvdcss, gstreamer-plugins-ugly, etc.). But for legal and ethical/philosophical reasons the distro will not officially point users to these.
