Okay. And you actually belive that people won't install this just the
same but will be "pissed" that it is not easy to do it but they need
to "jump through hoops" and there are legal ways to do this. Plus we
have selinux on by default to protect from badly behaving programs -
closed source and open source alike. Other distributions don't have
selinux installed so that is an extra layer of protection for security
of fedora users...

Plus if you look at reviews of linux distributions most of them have a
category "How easy is it to go to youtube and watch videos" because
that is what desktop users do and expect from any desktop.
