DesiVideoGamer (758299) writes "Good News: NBC decided to put up many videos from the olympics for free on their website. Bad News: They require silverlight; more or less blocking out PowerPC based Macs and all Linux PCs. Microsoft and NBC defended their use by calming that they were trying to provide "the richest online viewing experience based on technologies broadly available today." The LATimes article points out that many people are now resorting to piracy in order to view the highlights of the olympics online."
