So I can get his sweet distribtution for testing purposes. If that wont work he should put into some filesharing thing. But i think he wants to get rich, so that wont work 🙂
what are you talking about? he charges 5 bucks for anywhere in the USA and 10 worldwide, you think that will make him rich?
Just a general question now. So do i get this right? He took redhat 8 personal, with the default install, added some stuff and put his ubereasy installer on there? I wonder if he would allow other distros to use his installer, assuming it is as easy as it sounds.
tell me again … so why don’t other distros include ms fonts, libdvdcss, flash plugins …
why can this one get away with it?
It depends on the distro, but Red Hat for example wouldn’t ship something like Flash in its free distro because its closed source. Also some of the those things fall into a gray legal area and I certainly don’t fault any distro who doesn’t want to include them by default and risk any legal problems.
For some distros its about upholding the ideals of truly free software, for others its about not wanting to get into trouble.
On such a small scale like this(I’ve never even heard of this) you can pretty much do whatever you want.
I understand about EULA for MS Fonts. So I’m using a “clever” method from
with a script which will download source, build binary rpm and install it on the fly.
