Not to expect it would do so, but ask the bank to provide you with a Windows license. It might get it to understand that embedding proprietary features in its web site causes customers to need non-free software (Windows, not Flash or Acroread) that they otherwise have no need for, or that their hardware cannot support.

In this country, Windows is gratis. That's what they tell me. Most people pirate it, anyway.

And if it is not, busineses like people spending money on other busineses, so your argument doesn't buy any butter with them.

Consider: if I have to phone my bank to do some operation - for instance, my credit card is stolen, so I call to cancel it - I have to call a 902 phone. These numbers pay extra, no matter if my phone plan include free calls all day everywhere in the country. These calls cost extra, and not cheap.

They *love* me paying for things. You have to pay for Windows? Perfect!
