That may not be necessarily the goal of Mageia 1 to change that
though. We're 2 weeks into the final release, building up from scratch
a release message

Anyway, could you elaborate on the "it's all about the free to
connect" thing? I don't get the idea/meaning.

That's more for contributors than businesses.

Although that's interesting, this is not the kind of need you assess
13 days before the final release. File bugs for Mageia 2 if you like,
but here it's not on the list for Mageia 1.
