Hello there,

The BBC's head of technology is claiming that only about 400-600 people
use GNU/Linux to access the BBC, as part of their PR excercise glossing
over how badly they've got it wrong with their M$-only iPlayer (see
http://yro.slashdot.org/article.pl?sid=07/08/15/1721229 and for
background see

If you've used GNU/Linux to access the beeb, can you sign the petition
below? Please circulate widely.


Kind regards,
