Your chance to stop the BBC using Microsoft-only technology

I’ve just completed an online consultation/questionnaire for the BBC Trust about the proposed upcoming BBC video-on-demand service, and there’s quite an important question posed if, like me, you want open standards and not to be locked in to Microsoft technology.

How important is it that the proposed seven-day catch-up service over the internet is available to consumers who are not using Microsoft software?

It’s vitally important that if you live in the UK (or otherwise pay the licence fee) and you don’t want MS lock-in, to go onto this questionnaire and submit your views. We need everyone possible to tell the BBC to not do it in a Microsoft locked-in way, so please go and complete this.

The more people that do this, the better chance of getting our way!
