Ha, Debian and Fedora, the distributions, are imo not that different
after a standard install (but yes, there are differences as well -
patents strategy, Firmware). But yes, you are right, the Debian project
has a a official non-free repository, which is a significant difference

that respect Fedora's foundations and would probably leave Fedora if these were to
That's why I think it would be good if
