The fact that joe_155 didn't install the Quicktime codecs on his system doesn't mean that he would have to compile, debug and configure them before installing, or that he would need to tweak the kernel either. On most distros, he only has to open whatever package manager he uses and click on the thing.

So it's not fact. Then it's misconception or FUD.

As for fanaticism : taking something wrong and correcting it isn't fanaticism in my book.
