But realistically, what people want is close-to-the latest plus
Realistically, what people want varies widely. Geeks aside, one thing
they agree on is that it works, works and works.
some stuff that none of the above includes, like mplayer, xine,
xmms with mp3 support, java, flash and the browser plugins for
them, etc., so you want FC3 or FC4 with all current updates
and a bunch of 3rd party packages. It can be done, but
it's not necessarily pretty.
Those people are on the wrong distro:-)
SUSE has java, flash and at least some of the other stuff. Including
madwifi drivers (needed for my laptop).
If we can't have all that stuff, then we really ought to have simple
installers for it.
