Hi



if it helps/increases fedora acceptability in enterprise/data center than ...yes !!





Shipping all sorts of proprietary software can also be used a means of increasing "enterprise" viablity. This discussion is more involved than that


Yes like RHEL


RHEL doesnt ship any proprietary software either.

says who ...they ship sun jdk and proprietary nvidea drivers https://www.redhat.com/archives/fedora-list/2004-February/msg01368.html

Red Hat clearly possesses exclusive legal rights to Red Hat Enterprise Linux, namely the exclusive legal right to distribute RHEL in binary form, and most importantly, the accompanying exclusive legal right to pass along the ISV certifications associated with the RHEL binary distribution. Red Hat uses a legal vehicle, a cleverly crafted license it calls a subscription agreement, to enable it to possess these exclusive legal rights in a product that can continue to be marketed as open source.

I an NOT talking about shipping some propreitry software .....I am referring to supporting ...so please dont mis quote me or be more off topic !!

Fedora project doesnt target any enterprises or data centers so the point is moot anyway

"The goal of The Fedora Project <http://fedora.redhat.com/participate/terminology.html> is to work with the Linux community to build a *complete, general purpose* operating system"


"Complete" which means fedora can be used in any enviorment that includes data center or enterprises... many people companies specially ISP run on fedora in their data center .... I guess redhat does not treats fedora as lab rat for upcoming rhel solely
