"...some people are experiencing problems downloading BBC iPlayer content to computers. "
Yes, me for one.
Not because of any cock-ups with the iPlayer but because the BBC does not recognise Linux as an OS. I have complained repeatedly to the BBC about it and have always been blown off with the reply that "We do not support Linux" Why the hell not? Don't tell me that some IT people in the BBC have never heard of Linux.
If my licence payments are good enough why should the fact that I use Linux disqualify me from something I actually pay for?
