It may not be strictly codified, but in practice it is a big part of what 
Fedora is and many users choose it for that. And it is also the main 
technical difference between us and Ubuntu. (I know there's also the 
licensing stuff, like Ubuntu bundling proprietary drivers, but that's not 
that big a difference in practice, it's not like those drivers cannot be 
easily removed (or added, yuck!).)
