Fedora Core "The Fedora project is undergoing several changes before the release of its next version. In preparation for Fedora 7, which will fuse the Core and Extra software repositories, Fedora's developers are auditing the repositories for non-free and non-open software that doesn't meet the project's guidelines. Eventually, the project may change its package guidelines to only allow Free Software."

Exactly,

I don't see what the fuss about OSS is or FSS. How many OSS advocates also by car parts and build their own car? Or have the plans for their house? Did they build it themseleves or did a proprietary company build it for them. Do they hunt for their meat? Or raise their own crops? No... they by food from proprietary companies.

The only people that can complain about some computer users using closed source or proprietary software are the ones that do all the other above mentioned things themselves. I'll bet Stallman bought his own house and grows his own crops, hunts his in meat, etc., etc.! No!!
