Mandriva, Mandrake, Lycoris Unlike Apple and Microsoft, and despite numerous demands from their users, Linux distributions have been traditionally unable to directly ship the popular Adobe Flash Player with their packages, due to the closed source nature of the software and the restrictive license chosen by Adobe. While it does seems shorter than a regular EULA made by Microsoft with all the legalese that goes with it, it does still restrict redistribution in most cases, and the FAQ seemed to be clear about that point.

Yes, developers include flash player by default in distro. For test, etc. But its not mean, that still alive in final!

Currently we remove all non-free thing like flash, codecs, etc to separate repository and as we finish this, mandriva was clean.
