NOTE: In the past, Fedora used the acronym "EULA," for End User License Agreement, to inform people using the Fedora operating system about their rights and responsibilities. However, that term is misleading because any end user can easily be a redistributor of the Fedora operating system, because of the way that free and open source software work.
