as far as I know, the "mp3 un-support" means just that Fedora doesn't include the mp3-package for Xmms (or any other mp3-player) in the basic installation so that you'll need to download it manually after installing (I think it can be found at xmms.org) Fedora and install it (which needs as much as double-clicking?) so imo it is not a "limitation"

and to continue, I think there are really no "limitations" in linux, in the same way there are in Windows (like you-can't-edit-this-thing-because-uncle-Bill-tells-you-not-to), because everything should be "freely editable" in the way GNU Public licence (or others if there are) say...? like if you have a problem, you can go around it somehow or fix it.

Many packages with patenting or licencing issues are offered as add-ons or replacement packages at http://rpm.livna.org

at least I don't remember right now anything "big" but if you happen to lack something you think you want to or need to have, just follow the link misc gave.
