Yes, watched that too.  I agree with your opinion that it is a bit
short and not enough details.

But it's a great start!

Personally, anyone who watches this would (hopefully) be convinced
that it is good to have an almost FREE OS (some chargeable, some deffo
FREE).  The presenter made it clear, at the end, "After all, it won't
hurt to experiment because they cost you NOTHING!".....  that would
make viewers think, "Hmmm, it can't hurt to try OS softwares as it
doesn't hurt my pocket.  Let's give it a try."

Fingers crossed.

What I'd like from the Ch5 or indeed BBC is to show a bit better
coverage of Linux and how it impacts on our lives and perhaps a BBC
documentary to show that the 3rd World (developing countries) would
BENEFIT from a LINUX system [due to their economic difficulties].

Anyway, Ch5 has set the ball rolling, don't you think?
