"I'd still love to know how they have MP3 covered in Germany though."

I think I read in some of the announcements that they bundle the Fluendo MP3 codec (which is free-as-in-beer, just not speech).

"They aren't really necessary. There is software around that will play these files without touching Windows components."

You mean ffmpeg. Yes, ffmpeg is rather good these days, but it still can't handle some of the newer / trickier incarnations of WMV. On the whole, though, I agree, which is why I've been pushing for PLF to drop win32-codecs (and a few other blatant copyright infringements) so it can be more officially recognized by Mandriva...
