| BBC, Sky, ITN all suck big time. Try watching Al Jazeera, there's always
| something fairly important or interesting on there, and no
| "entertainment news" (a contradictory term in itself).
I like the jazeera news (I get it from the Sky News package), it helps 
give a different view on things and covers more international news, I 
like BBC as well, but there are some things jazeera covers that BBC 
never mentions (unless a briton was involved). i just wanted to try 
al-jazzera online now,  while I am at work (windows machine) and I 
needed to install real player plugin, tried to do it from firefox, it 
failed, tried to do it manually and I had to register to real player all 
the non-sense, vnced to my machine at home, tried it from there on 
ubuntu, and I guess it works (saw mplayer run but no video, maybe a vnc 
thing). those restriced and extra packages in the repos, I think they 
make it easier to get plugins and codecs for ubuntu that it is for windows!
