If they were really serious about their efforts to set a foot into the
world of free software, they'd make plugins (which don't even have to be
GPL'ed, mind you!) available to play Realmedia content using GStreamer.
I've even offered to write those plugins for them, for free (see the
GNOME d-d-l archives)! The whole GNOME and KDE desktop would suddenly
play realmedia files.

But as we all know, it's really just a joke. They don't care about the
free software world. They need users to get funding for their paid
content. Very disappointing.
