There's no linux distribution at the moment that plays MP3 out of the box...

There are many Linux distros that have support for MP3 (and more) out of the box. The thing they all have in common is that you have to pay for them.

If NLD becomes the first free Linux distro to ship an MP3 decoder, then that is pretty big news.

I want some XGL screenshots...
