More than 7,000 angry Linux users have protested against the European Union after it excluded them from viewing streaming videos.
The EU makes streaming videos of many of its most important council debates and press conferences available online. However, this service only works on Windows and Apple computers.
Stefan Esterer, a member of computing staff from Austria's University of Salzburg who is also involved with Debian, created an online petition last Friday which calls on the EU to stop excluding open-source users. At the time of writing, 7,600 people had already signed up.
