But .. WMF is *fully supported in Fedora* 8->

Look at libwmf package wchich provides library for handling this format.
This package provides library for handling WMF files and also gtk+ DSO
loader which enalbes using WMF files for examle in all GTK+/GNOME
applications.

You wrote "WMF" but probably in this case you though about "WMV".
Packages with codecs for this and other proprietar formats as sam as in
in Ubunt case are maintained _outside_ core packages set (leagal
reasons) .. so there is no *big/any* diffrence beetween Fedora and
Ubuntu on this area.

Please decide Raymond .. are you have technical problems with Fedora
"packages dependencies" (why are you not describe all your problems on
this list ?) or with legion of "political problems" ? (own problems ?).
