Well it depends on you point of view. In the world of open software
versions of Linux decide to supply a set of necessary application types
(browsers in this case) that are produced by other organizations. Whose
responsibility is it to see that firefox works, or gnome works in the
context of FCx? What is the purpose of the testing phases of Fedora?

Either Fedora has to supply its own mplayer, browser , flash plugin that
works in the distribution or see that the program suppled by others
works. I would not say this for more off the wall applications but every
user expects that there essential applications work. Otherwise we can't
attack Microsoft.

I know that in some sense in this case it is partially the fault of CNN
or Fox. But I am frustrated since I have to spend weeks every 6 months
or so to make the next Fedora version work. I know I could use Centos or
pay for RHEL from my spare cash. I just want to share my frustration
this time. Next week I will go on to something else, like figuring up
why XML is not working for me at the moment.
