It may not occur to everyone, but Netflix, Lovefilm, NOW TV or whatever don't have control over any of these things. It's entirely dictated by the movie studios, for example, we
/have/ to use silverlight, because of DRM. We can't allow hdmi-out, because the movie studios won't let us. No streaming movie provider makes or has the ability to make any of these decisions, it is entirely within the realm of the rights-holder.
The only reason any of these work outside of silverlight is by the hardware vendor providing some form of DRM under which videos can be delivered. Anybody making hardware will provide this DRM if they have any sense, but for things like Linux, where DRM is a No-No and Microsoft won't support it, you're pretty much stuffed.
The irony is that the provider I work for develops the entire service on Linux, and yet any of our customers who want to watch movies on Linux, simply can't.
I don't want to start a holy war here, but what is the deal with you Model fanatics? I've been sitting here at my freelance gig in front of a Super Model for about 20 minutes now while it attempts to get laid. 20 minutes.

I'd like to redefine the OS. I'll call it... Linux.
The whole point of Chromium is that it acts as a single process per tab, not as multiple threads of one process. So Chromium still won't run. This is just more fuel for Linux (not that it needs any, nowadays)
This is the thinking behind Elgg. An open source, open platform social networking app. Why don't people do research before writing articles.
