    The existing Vista, Firefox and iGoogle weather gadgets will be retired over the next six months. They will be replaced with a new Desktop Widget which will be compatible with a wide range of operating systems and will be available from late March.

    Link: Met Office cuts off Linux users with new weather widgets ? The Register

    Previously the Met Office's Firefox and iGoogle weather gadgets allowed anyone with internet access to check the weather from their homepage: now you need to be running either a Mac or Windows OS to get the latest weather news piped to you by the second.

    Linux-based weather-heads desperate to find out the latest temperature statistics and the likelihood of rain can, of course, visit the Met Office website, but that involves at least one more click than usual. And the Penguins don't like that.
