You don't install Fedora to view multimedia...

I keep forgetting that "free" Linux out of the box will not play most forms of media. Yes, one of the drawbacks of having no exchange of money between me and them occuring is there's no exchange of money from them to the licensors of the various patents for the tech to allow playback of common media. Anyway, I have to keep a link to Stanton Finley who keeps figuring out how to get Fedora Linux to play such things again.

That said, Fedora version 5 is almost beautiful.

(I also play around with Ubuntu, which also has someone making a piece of software to automatically add add-ons.)
