Fedora and Codeina

I am really happy to see the inclusion into the next release of Fedora (release 8) the ability to include proprietary and non-free coder/decoder (codecs) that allow for the listening to encumbered audio and video formats. It is so important that people realize that listening to mp3s and watching wma/wmv is essentially surrendering to the broken software patent scheme and that if you really wanted to, you can make that choice in a Fedora installation. Kudos to the Fedora developer community for making choice really happen here!
