The question you should be asking is: is this Fedora's target audience?!

Fedora intends to provide a FREE system that show cases the latest and
greatest in FREE software. Providing proprietary software is clearly
not in line with this mission and so Fedora isn't going to do this.
After all, we'd rather change the world than go along with it :)

Now perhaps, unless you think you can come up with a better way to
make Fedora's mission clear to everyone else, or I've been entirely
mistaken, perhaps we could end this thread?
