"Restricted" Software

Ubuntu comes as a mostly "free" (as in freedom) system — there is no proprietary software installed by default. However, there is a lot of "free" (as in beer) proprietary software available, as well as software which allows you to access proprietary formats.

The Ubuntu Wiki has a section on these Restricted Formats, and how you can install them if you so desire. Since this is fairly complete, I won't go into detailed instructions here.
