Again, Fedora will only include Free and open source software. Supporting non-free software is any manner is a explicit non-objective.

We all know that the real objective of fedora is to get a lot of users to do the beta testing on what will be the next RHEL after which they quickly stop supporting those tested versions and move on. Maybe they get enough testers without having to be bothered making it convenient for nvidia, vmware, etc. users.

Promoting Free and open source software is a well recognized objective of Fedora. You might choose to ignore it and insert your own perspective. Doesn't change the fact that Fedora isn't interested in supporting proprietary software.

There's a big difference in 'supporting' proprietary software and shooting the feet out from under your own users that depend on it.
