Why does Fedora make it harder in everything .. It comes with no codecs, no software even Intel Hd graphics driver is hard to install and after using Intel graphic installer.. graphics resolution is still not good .. why Fedora insists on losing some of its lovers .. while other linux distros make it easier .. and don't reply by saying "when then you use Fedora and you can go to any other distro?! "

Hi: It's addressed in the principles Forbidden Items And it's certainly not that hard enabling 2 extra repositories to get most of what you need.

And for Intel proprietary driver, well that's an issue that could be reviewed, you should file a bug about that.

Kind regards

Well, we don't make it harder than other distribution. Most of the major distributions don't ship proprietary codecs, firmware, drivers, and similar stuff for a good reason. Of course this can be an obstacle for the users but it seems that this obstacle is only a small one because nobody complains to the vendors.
