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.

Bull, there are lots of Linux distributions with support for MP3 out of the box which you don't have to pay anything for. The biggest one goes by the name Mandriva (yes in the no cost version too), and there are several others.


If NLD becomes the first free Linux distro to ship an MP3 decoder

As already stated it's not, and NLD is one of those you have to pay for btw. So it's already excluded by your previous argument.
