A lot of people feel the same way about the decline in output quality on the
terrestrial TV. But I agree with Russell about 3, 4, and the radio. Whatever
your view though, they are still going to take the licence fee off you, so I
would urge any UK readers to go to the BBC Trust site at

http://www.bbc.co.uk/bbctrust/consult/open_consultations/ondemand_services.html

and express your views. The consultation is not solely about a Microsoft-only
system, though, and I would remind everyone that it's likely that sounding
like you've given the whole consultation thought is probably likely to get
more results than if one comes off as simply someone who hates Microsoft. I
would imagine that the bulk of people reading your input are probably not
technical specialists.

Cheers
Fergus
