EU withdraws claim that Linux support is illegal

The European Union has blamed a translation mistake for its claim that it cannot legally support Linux.

As reported last week, the EU had claimed that Linux users could not legally view its video streams — after many thousands complained that they are being excluded. The streaming service offers many important videos of the EU's debates and briefings, but only to Windows and Mac OS users.

The claim, which was contained in a widely viewed questions-and-answers document on the EU's site, has now been amended following inquiries from ZDNet UK.
