One frustration I keep finding with Fedora has been some of the simpler joys - something like playing mpg videos or mp3s. I am constantly having to remove packages that exist, but have features disabled so I can recompile and reinstall the same packages. I might as well do just a minimal install and integrate the things I want manually.
I understand they don't want to get into a copyright or patent infringment situation, but it's frustrating to me to have features disabled when those were features I needed. Why waste time and space with packages that seem like demo models with functions turned off?
FC 6 is about to come off my computer and I'll experiment with other distros. Would FC 7 leave me with this same problem?
