Default Number One Bug and the Olympics

A few days ago I discover that you could only watch the Olympics in the USA if you where there on the continental USA and you did not run Linux of any kind do to a new attack on the freedom of computers call Silverlight from Microsoft.


To help free the Olympics and our computers I have made a site to talk about these problems.

I am a normal user of Kubuntu and am new to this Ubuntu list but wanted to invite as many as I could to help fix this problem with Linux and the Olympics.


Thanks for you time!

Please join the list and help or just ghost it.

Thanks again,

Are you talking about the Olympic games in Do Ping.…? ;P


Well, about the subject, they just do anything to force us Linux users to go back to Windows, right? Why am I not surprised…

They should have used Ubuntu!

Microsoft got a double pie in the face. They got the Blue screen of death from a system that is very old and should be stable by now! And, Microsoft was the official system of the Olympics but the IOC refused to use VISTA because it was to unstable!! LOL.


You are right, choose something stable like Ubuntu.
