Why EULA cannot be as this: "User is legally free to copy, modify, share and
redistribute this Software on any number of computers."
It is just agreement between user and authors, nothing more, nothing less.
Or, maybe I should call it just LA? Fedora COre has EULA and except
trademaked images it is not restriced user in anything.

They're still not harrassing me, but I hear reports that make me think. It
lokks like it is better have license agreement on software in use.
