The currently ongoing Democratic National Convention has a streaming video service where you can see the proceedings from your computer. But only if you run certain operating systems; Linux isn’t included. If you do try using it with Linux, you get this message:
We’re pretending to be sorry, but the Democratic Convention video web site isn’t compatible with your operating system and/or browser. Please try again on a computer with the following:
Compatible operating systems:
Windows XP SP2, Windows Vista, or a Mac with Tiger (OS 10.4) or Leopard (OS 10.5). If you are using Linux, we think you are a nerdy loser and we don’t give a fuck about your vote. This does not prevent us from running our website using Linux, nor will it prevent us from trying to associate ourselves with Internet startups, which typically use Linux and other Open Source software.
