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.

This is article is just as fucking clueless as the other one written, you obviously total insight on neither rpm5, events that lead to mageia, nor adobe flash troll by Michael Schere.

You'd better learn from Jonathan Corbet which wrote the other rpm5 article recently which actually did a good article without revealing great ignorance and arrogance..

RPM5 has not been a fiasco whatsoever, and everyone now agrees on it was the correct and it works perfect, and way better than rpm 4.x..

Please stop your ignorant slander and try work on morre well-informed/serious journalistic than writing about what you don't know jack shit about, don't even try to (you did not ask for any input from jeff or me at all, in contract to Corbet, this is really poor journalism and totally clueless).

Seriously, there's a reason for less and less people read osnews, reading poorly written articles about technical stuff the author know, AND slandering projects due to this arrogant ignorance of, people has mostly stopped read you over the last years.

Shape up or slip out, and if you wanna slam on rpm5, I'm for a debate, you're very welcome to speak to me directly, with an exclusive interview provided.
It would be an honour, but untill you do anything of such sort, I *WILL* start slandering your incompetence on frequently when I see retard FUD against RPM, Mandriva og anything else I'm involved with..
