Multimedia

Does Xandros come with non-free multimedia enhancements such as mp3, flash, java, etc. pre-installed? If it does, than admittedly it will come out ahead of Ubuntu as a multimedia distribution.

However, in fairness to Ubuntu, of all of the free community based distributions I have tried, none were as easy to "enhance" with non-free multimedia support.

My only problem with Ubuntu was that it was a little rough around the edges. I am eagerly anticipating the release of Warty Warthog however, and am generally very excited about the potential of Ubuntu.
