In yesterday's story C++ 2011 and the Return of Native Code, TFA contains a link to a story about an app for ChromeOS that enables Netflix streaming. At this moment there appears to be a way to stream Netflix on a single Linux distro via Google Chrome and its new native client. This kind of solution may become available for other distros in the near future. I'm sure Richard Stallman would prefer a more open solution, as would I. Still, it's a step in the right direction for Netflix.
