Why can't Netflix support Linux?

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?"

Can't get the content without it. Nobody believes it can stay secure on Linux. (Probably true.)

Linux people are too busy to watch movie online ! (0)

Unlike the xdoz ppl or the fruity ppl who have too much time so they post every-single-thing-they-do on FB or watch movie via netflix or whatever, the Linux ppl occupy their time in using their Linux machine to do much productive operations.
