"The Council of the EU has a streaming service so that we can watch its
meetings ? but the service can only be accessed by Mac or MS Windows
users. This is because they employ WMV format for the videos. In the FAQ
they express a really strange opinion about this: 'The live streaming
media service of the Council of the European Union can be viewed on
Microsoft Windows and Macintosh platforms. We cannot support Linux in a
legal way. So the answer is: No support for Linux.' An online petition
has been set up to create pressure to convince the EU council to change
its service to one that is platform independent." (slashdot)


You are free to sign the petition.

Video games don't affect kids,
I mean if Pac Man affected us as kids,
we'd all run around in a darkened room 
munching pills and listening to repetitive music.
