If legal is worrying about the 1-click. How about first-time start up of mplayer or playing a media file will show a message:
As long as Novell holds the rights to openSUSE and is thus a lucrative target to sue this won't happen. we can possibly talk about that when we actually do have an openSUSE foundation that holds the rights and is in itself poor enough to not be a worthy target.
As things are, we have to stay with the current unsatisfying situation.
I'm curious how it is that Ubuntu gets away with it then. I installed 10.04 in a VM yesterday and it _just worked_. I started up Rhythmbox for the first time and it told me that it wasn't currently able to play MP3s and presented a giant button to automatically install the codecs.
No scary prompts, no warnings about signed repos, nothing. If they can do this, there must be something we're missing.
