Today, the frontpage of the European Parliament was advertising live broadcast on the internet of the "Google / Doubleclick merger discussed by MEPs - live online today" discussed by MEPs in the Civil Liberties Committee. Hopefully, the internet is only for people who paid the Microsoft tax, the stream is advertised as being for Windows Media Player only. The European Parliament forces you to buy Microsoft products?
Here is a screenshot (you won't see the video, I am running Xubuntu Linux):
I thought the European Court of Justice asked Microsoft to unbundle the Media Player product out of the de facto, unrefundable and pre-installed Microsoft Windows OEM:
Microsoft forced to split Windows, Media Player by EU
Microsoft will have to begin offering versions of Windows without Windows Media Player built-in, according to a ruling handed down today by the President of the European Union Court of First Instance.
There is still some work to do to get cross-platform and interoperability, in order to get all the citizens (such as the ones running Plan9, Solaris, OpenBSD, Qtopia, Linux PPC, OS/2, etc…) on the same equal foot.
