We are dedicated to free software and content.
Advancing software and content freedom is a central community goal, which we accomplish through the software and content we promote. We choose free alternatives to proprietary code and content and limit the effects of proprietary or patent encumbered code on the Project.
Sometimes this goal prevents us from taking the easy way out by including proprietary or patent encumbered software in Fedora. But by concentrating on the free software and content we provide and promote, the end result is that we are able to provide:
releases that are predictable and 100% legally redistributable for everyone;
innovation in free and open source software that can equal or exceed closed source or proprietary solutions;
and, a completely free project that anyone can emulate or copy in whole or in part for their own purposes.
