H.264 in Fedora 17!

I gave up a long time ago on using Linux as my primary desktop: I found my
self spending too much time helping the computer to work correctly than
having the computer helping me to work better.

I think the Fedora Project is about advanced Open Source mostly (but not
only) for server side, task automation, excellent sysadmin practices and
soberb software deployment.

So in my opinion if a user insists on using Linux on the desktop he would
also know about alternative repos with all H.264s, MP3s and DVDCSSs he will
need. At the end of the day, Fedora to not ship with H.264, MP3 etc is not
a big problem.
