I could but I'm not sure that would be very productive.

First, the problem is with the business banking site so it means I would
have to change my business's accounts and therefore change all templates
I have such as invoice templates, etc.

Then, the problem is quite recent. Their business web site used to work
fine with Linux, it's only recently that it started not working. So if I
were to go through all the hassle of changing banks, I would need to
move to a bank that *officially* supports Linux. Otherwise, I may very
well find myself in the same situation with another bank in the future.

Finally, even though there are a lot of banks that have web sites that
happen to work fine on Linux, I am not aware of any one that does
officially supports it and that will actually deal with a support
request any better than my current bank has.

What I'm interested in is the last bit. Whether their web site happens
to work on Linux or not is one thing. But as soon as you send a support
query, you get a canned answer saying they don't officially support it.
What I'd really want to know is what can we do to change that behaviour?
