Yeah it sucks. But MP3 isn't streaming and Windows Media is arguably more proprietary. Personally I think they should use streamed Vorbis or Speex (OGG).

In the meantime, you can try RealAlternative, a hacked version of the Real codec without the bloated player and adware:

Hey I never suggested WMA or MP3 instead! MP3 is streamable but it's still proprietary too.

Definitely better with OGG/Vorbis. The Beeb even did stream with OGG for a while but ran out of resources. Shame.
