There's an online petition to stop the BBC going Windows-only with its iplayer.

I thought this was for those of us who refuse to conform :)

Much as HisTonyness would like to run the BBC I don't think he can yet ;-)
However I did sign the petition but it would be better to write directly to the bbctrust whose job it is to "work on behalf of licence fee payers"

It can't hurt to make your feelings known in more than one place.

Done, and so have 6,858 others as of 14:30. A couple of weeks ago I did a bbctrust online questionaire where this was one of the main items, so I made my views known there as well.
I have been touched by his noodly appendage.

Done, I did the BBC Trust's survey ages ago (well it seems like ages ago anyway).

I wrote to the BBC Trust regarding their proposed iPlayer and received
a reply saying that they are in the process of consultations about it
and that their provisional conclusions are on the following site:

Please look and tell them if they have got it wrong ;-)
