- Users need these drivers
- the kernel devs have a point (if not legally (which doesn't really matter to me), morally).
So to be honest I really don't know about distributing them in Mint.. I see a strong reason why I should, and also a strong reason why I shouldn't. the only thing that's for sure at the moment is that they won't be present in Bea.
The plugin issue was mentioned and we're currently looking at it. Appart from wmv, we found that Firefox would not play quicktime or even avi or mpg movies.. This will definitely be fixed in Bea.
