Last year the EU decided to give the makers of Symbian a €11000000 to help Nokia increase its profits.
Not much later Nokia decided to join the dark side (Windows Phone) and dump Symbian.
The EU used Nokia's decision to kill Symbian to revoke the Symbian subsidy. A subsidy that shouldn't have been handed out to begin with.
Now let's hope they won't repeat their mistake. My tax money is NOT meant to subsidise operating systems on commercial products made by commercial enterprises. Not Android, not Windows Phone, not Blackberry, not Symbian.
