My 0.02USD:

Realize that some of what you describe, such as DVD and RealPlayer
technology (mp3s?), will never be able to be supported in a
free-as-in-liberty distribution. Their licenses don't jive with it.

OTOH, I do see it as strange you would have to futz with sound in order to
play a CD in any distribution. Can anybody shed some light on that?
