Those are really important for desktop users. thats the reason why

were patented. If you want to watch videos (offline, non-flash) or
hear
music (except mp3) you most definetly need packman.

No, you don't... you could actually go the patent-legal way and buy the
OnePlay Codec Pack... stating that you must use PM is like stating you
must commit a crime to use watch Videos (depending on region that is...
)

IMO the legal way is the way to go here, i. e. downloading the OnePlay Codec
Pack. If it's really so important for someone to have all that MM-stuff, 20$
seems affordable - you would still get the OS for free.

BUT - just an idea, not thought through - would it perhaps be possible to get
a better deal for openSUSE-users? Let's say 10 $?

Could be a win-win for both sides. But I don't know if this would be
technically feasable.

Perhaps complete BS. Better forget about it. ;)
