LOL! So true. Before people chime in about Netflix not offering Linux support.

The ChromeOS which is based off Linux does support Netflix. As Google made a deal with Netflix.

Netflix uses Silverlight because Hastings was on the Microsoft board. He says otherwise but since Silverlight is a piece of crap and they would be far better off with other options, you can draw your own conclusions.

This is funny but it's also serious, I can't think of another streaming service that uses Silverlight.

@moviegeek65..

this fall's debut pac12 sports streaming channels run on silverlight too.

No, I think that that is the opinion of a lot of people.

The only other reason to install Silverlight is to watch NBC's Olympics coverage online. I think that does, or did before, require Silverlight.

mr.know it all

so should i remove silverlight ?

HBO Go uses Silverlight

Silverlight = All-eggs-in-1-basket solution
It doesn't exactly help that Netflix is essentially encouraging people to find 'workarounds' and we know what happened when Linux people tried to watch DVD's... 'nuff said! :(
