I'm a previous Ubuntu user, and it helped me to get used to gNewSense.
As long as we don't give instructions on how to do a certain thing in
non-free operating systems like Ubuntu and Windows, I don't think we do
anything bad. Referencing can't be bad. Acknowledging that things exist
isn't bad.

It might be non-community-guideline-like to tell "I know how you can do
this/that in Ubuntu/non-free-OS, just follow these steps...".

I don't know if Deboard answered regarding my suggestion to use Miro in
gNewSense for internet video.
