This is not just for the kernel but for the entire distribution on the whole.

How the hell cant you sit there and type that lie?

You probably meant to say "can" there.

It is known goal.


Fedora hacks number of programs because certain code in them doesnt go along with fedora policy, even openoffice is butchered (ref: this newsgroup recent thread) not even going to start on the multimedia programs.

See the other objectives on why programs may have patches. Also refer http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/PackageMaintainers/WhyUpstream for some exceptions.

Multimedia programs usually have proprietary or patent encumbered codecs are plugins that Fedora default repository doesn't include.
