Save the BBC - by setting it free

,----[ Quote ]
| That would leave the public with one remaining problem: ensuring that the 
| government really does then allocate the funds - raised in a way that 
| genuinely provides a legacy for selling something so precious to so many - 
| wisely.   



Save the BBC from Windows DRM!

,----[ Quote ]
| Clearly, shutting out 25% of your audience sits ill with the BBC's
| remit of serving all of its users...
| There is no denying that this is an extremely difficult area for
| the BBC, since it must negotiate not one but three minefields -
| those of technology standards, copyright and contract law. But
| there are still things that it could do without turning into a
| global advertisement for Microsoft's flawed DRM approach.


Free the BBC

,----[ Quote ]
| We are deeply concerned about the BBC's use of "Digital Rights 
| Management" (DRM) to manage content delivered to users over the 
| Internet. There are dozens of arguments against DRM, however we 
| believe these are the most important and relevant to the BBC.


Confused BBC tech chief: Only 600 Linux users visit our website

,----[ Quote
| Ooops. Highfield goes on to say that these users should be seen in the 
| context of the vast majority, who run Windows. 


Beeb slammed for 'fawning' to Bill Gates 

,----[ Quote ]
| BBC viewers have flooded the corporation with complaints over how it
| covered the launch of Microsoft Vista earlier this week.
| In one cringingly servile interview worthy of Uriah Heep, the
| Beeb's news presenter Hugh Edwards even thanked Gates at the
| end of it, presumably in appreciation at being allowed to give
| the Vole vast coverage for free.
| In other TV news items presenters excitedly explained how Vista
| could be obtained and installed - details courtesy of the BBC's
| website.
| But British viewers, currently forced to pay a £131.50 licence
| fee to maintain the BBC's "impartiality", were less than impressed.
| Scores got in touch to complain that so much was Auntie up Bill's
| bum that you could barely see her corset.
