Today the BBC made it official -- they have been corrupted by Microsoft.
With today's launch of the iPlayer, the BBC Trust has failed in its most
basic of duties and handed over to Microsoft sole control of the on-line
distribution of BBC programming. From today, you will need to own a
Microsoft operating system to view BBC programming on the web.

Also, if you're in the North of England and would be interested in a
potential protest at BBC Manchester on the same day, please considering
joining 'Manchester Free Software'. As you may know, the BBC is soon to
move large amounts of its London operations to Manchester and Salford.

BBC as a user of free software, and one of your complusory subscribers, I have the right to be brainwashed by you in my preferred operating system!
