Linux Some people hate the idea of adding proprietary software to their desktop Linux. For these people, there are Linux distributions such as gNewSense that use only free software. For the rest of us, who use distributions such as Fedora, openSUSE and Ubuntu, there are times we either want to, or feel forced to, add proprietary programs such as Adobe Flash or Skype or the ability to play proprietary audio and video formats such as MP3 or commercial DVDs to your Linux desktop. Here's how to do it.

nt_jerkface, please stop being a troll, and please make your name less self-descriptive.

You really never add anything to the discussions, you just troll. It's okay to have a different opinion about something, but please be nice about it. Most OSNews commenters seem to do that fine - the people on this site are much smarter and more respectful than any other site I know of. So please don't be a jerk.

And, I don't quite see how the part of the parent comment that you quoted is opinion. He simply stating the fact that it will be very hard for anything to overcome H.264 because it is so ubiquitous. And that's true. (And this is coming from one of the usual open source advocates.)
