What's wrong with this picture?

From pic2009.org, the web site for info on The One's ascension:

The Presidential Inaugural Committee, at the direction of President-elect Obama and Vice President-elect Biden, will organize an inclusive and accessible inauguration that reflects the new Administration's commitment to leadership that sets aside partisanship and unites the nation around our shared values and ideals.

Meanwhile, from PC World magazine's web site (aren't they going web-only, in which case I don't know whether that makes sense?):

Microsoft's Silverlight technology has been chosen to stream U.S. President-elect Barack Obama's swearing-in ceremony live on the Presidential Inaugural Committee's Web site, Microsoft said Friday.
 The use of Silverlight 2.0 means that Macintosh, Linux, and BSD users will not be able to view the stream.

Not that I want to watch the inauguration, but it would be nice to see a lapse into non-hypocrisy.
