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."

I'm not sure what you're talking about. Redhat/fedora has long been one of the more "strict" distros when it comes to stuff like this, eg. the lack of even mp3 support in the past (present?)

long before ubuntu even existed and SUSE was still S.u.S.E., redhat users have been accustomed to having to download their codecs, closed drivers, and other bits from third party repos, such as livna and freshrpms.
