I have a question:

Many times I have heard that Fedora cannot be a fully functioning operating system because of licensing constraints.


It can but we cant provide it due to patent concerns. http://www.redhat.com/advice/speaks_80mm.html



My question is:

Why are other distributions not plagued by these same constraints? They're all Linux.

Every Linux distribution that ships only open source software and is based on regions where software patents are enforced will be affected.
