Fedora Core Fedora Core 1 has been out now for a few days now and many faithful Linux fans have already installed it. Red Hat's Linux is still one of my favorite distributions because of one main reason: compatibility with Linux software. Red Hat is a market leader and following the market leader assures the least trouble for most users. But is this the case with Fedora Core?

I do agree.
We should keep in mind what's out-of-the-box (or out-of-the-distro) and review that, no need to go find the xx.yy release. Let me add that for the same reason it's time to stop complaining about mp3 unsupport in RH product lines: we know that. I have been through many forums and it seems to be not legal in US, so far so good. I do not know why VLC or Ogle or Xine are not there but maybe it is for the same reason (anyone can confirm that ?). EU distros comes with multimedia maybe no legal problems here.
Ogg is good enough if you plan to store your music on your hard drive. Sure is not enough to carry your music with you ... Anybody knows about an ogg player ?
