+ - Why can't Netflix support Linux? 2

Submitted by

sheehaje writes "I've been trying for almost 2 years to find a way to get Netflix to run on Linux. Avoiding the usual "Just run it on XP under VirtualBox" workarounds, I have even tried to write my own Silverlight wrap arounds. It hasn't worked, mainly because I am substandard coder. But I know there are a lot that are up to the challenge. Why doesn't Linux have support for Netflix instant streaming yet? Netflix isn't worth the hack? Netflix doesn't exactly want to look at the issue; if you search for "linux" in their knowledge base, it does not even show a get well sympathy message. Where have all the rebels gone?"
