Just in case this hasn't got to Sounder yet, we present the BBC's view
of the number of Linux users in the UK...

The BBC's head of technology, Ashley Highfield, in making excuses for the
iPlayer, claims that only 400-600 people access the BBC website using Linux!
Since I can probably name over 100 of those people, I'm sure he's very very
wrong. Someone has set up a petition to help assess how wrong
he is. If you access www.bbc.co.uk using GNU/Linux, please sign up.


My signature is number 242, so about half of the audience has signed up
already :)
