We used to use Saga Analytics, like the BBC does, but I found it quite poor and unsuitable for our needs; so we switched to Urchin, and paid for a while before it suddenly became a free service branded Google Analytics. Suits my budget line!

Two interesting headline figures: our Linux share seems similar, if slightly larger, than the BBC's but it doesn't appear to be growing; and there has been a clear rise in users of the Macintosh platform over the past year.

Points to note: Virgin Radio's website is designed without any Windows-specific stuff, and works perfectly with Ubuntu (including our live audio which defaults, on that platform, to a Flash-based MP3 player); Google Analytics will only measure JavaScript-enabled browsers (Ubuntu, at least, has JavaScript switched on by default just like every other system); and naturally GA will only measure systems that aren't lying about who they are (one reason why Opera has done badly in internet stats, to my understanding).

Hope this is intersting to everyone. Keep up the good work chaps.
