Summary: Differences (namely free vs. non-free contents)
between isos only visible in the fine print
AssignedTo: mageia-webteam at mageia.org
ReportedBy: molch.b at googlemail.com
Description of problem:
Which iso contains only free packages and which contains non-free is not
visible on the download page, to see it you have to read the fine print at the
bottom of the page and follow the link to another page.
But to know this difference is essential for selecting the iso, especially for
owners of machines with wifi. For a new to Mageia user and even more for a
migrator to Linux (who may not even know about "free / non-free") we should
give a hint to this difference in the top part - before people select their
Better even to decorate that hint with a fat red exclamation mark. This way we
may avoid numerous postings like "I installed everything but [my wifi|my 3d]
does not work!" - not counting those who turn away silently.
