Um, Red Hat Linux comes with xpdf already.  Obviously Adobe's Acrobat
Reader cannot be included -- it is not free or open source.  (Windows
doesn't come with this either, now does it?)  It's just as easy to
download and install Adobe Acrobat Reader for Linux as it is for
Windows, however.

I really only replied to make that point, but here's some other
comments:

Already been rehashed; please see the previous discussion.  I think it's
fair to say it won't be included, my guesses based on this discussion.

Yum is in rawhide, so it will probably be in a future release.  Been
discussed here already too.

This would be cool, I agree.

Been quite a lot of discussion already on samba 3...
