Re: Netflix Finally Comes To Linux! (Sort of...)
This sort of thing bothers me as much as all the folks out there using other kludges like IR blasters to "get around" anti-consumer crap. When you do that sort of stuff you're supporting companies with blatant anti-consumer policies, and thereby telling them that it's OK. Please folks...vote with your wallets. If netflix insists on making you jump through hoops like this, DON'T buy from them...especially given the requirement for that Godless Silverlight.
This is the very reason I've been using only OTA for my TV for over 20 years. Right now I'm recording all my OTA HD TV on my MythTV system with no hokey crap or work arounds involved...and when CV calls to ask why I don't have a TV package, I tell them exactly why in painful detail .
