BBC Petition to Support Operating Systems Other Than Windows

Web-based petition on the web site of the British prime minister:

We the undersigned petition the Prime Minister to prevent the BBC from making its iPlayer on-demand television service available to Windows users only, and instruct the corporation to provide its service for other operating systems also.

I think it’s a bad idea for anyone to make something like this Windows-only, but it seems particularly outrageous for a publicly funded entity such as the BBC. This is a chance for the BBC to lead the way.
