Fluendo also has a legal MP3 decoder that is a no-cost download, and a full codec pack that has a small cost for fully legal gstreamer decode plugins.

Linux users too often flaunt the law by using patented software 
illegally.  By doing so we refuse to support those who invest their 
funds and blood to produce compatible software.  Then we complain about 
companies not supporting Linux.  I wonder who is at fault for that. ;-)

No, I don't support the concept of software patents, but let's not go 
there right now.

I, for one, have no problem with supporting companies who support Linux. 
  I buy software and hardware from vendors who support Linux, and I take 
the time to write to those who don't to complain.  Maybe if more of us 
would support companies who support Linux there would be more companies 
willing to make the investment required to support Linux.

Now don't think that I'm not an open source supporter.  I use it when I 
can get it because open source leads to innovation and improved data 
security.  Where are all those people who use proprietary software that 
uses proprietary file formats going to go when the company they have 
been depending on decides to abandon their customers.
