Internet Explorer I am almost flabbergasted by the spin and blunt-face upon which this news is delivered. We were just discussing the pot calling the kettle black with Apple / Adobe and now Microsoft have also come out in favour of a closed video format for an open web--IE9's HTML5 video support will allow H264 only. Update Now that the initial shock is over, I've rewritten the article to actually represent news rather than something on Twitter.

I think he meant that as an example - it could have been other operating systems as well. I think the point is a double-team effort of MS and Apple to maintain control over who uses what codecs to record/playback their video on the internet. Google too, I think, no? Somehow this gets back to organizations looking to maintain control over their products (music, movies, etc.)
