    Re: Really Netflix? The 3DS before Linux?

    What?

    People are reading FAR too much into this.

    Netflix will invest their money where they will see a big return.

    The linux desktop user market will not see a big return. Thus, they will...

    Because Silverlight is a very good platform to go for? It's not that hard to work out.

    Re: Really Netflix? The 3DS before Linux?

    Er, you have this backwards.

    Why spend money investing in technology that works on a niche market that will only see a very small return on that investment.

    It doesn't make financial sense.

    And what? If I could release a product to "only" OS X and Windows users I'd be delighted.



    Bingo. Well said sir.

    Re: Really Netflix? The 3DS before Linux?

    It does?

    You need to remember that the ones that think flash is a good choice tend to be linux users and to big companies like Netflix there aren't enough of those for them to care that much.

    Considering all the partnerships Netflix has with various companies I think it's fair to say that it is far from on its way out.

    [SOLVED] Re: Anybody got an Ubuntu Baseball Cap?

    The clothes in the shop are all brutal looking. Not a chance I'd be seen wearing any of it.

    Quite expensive too for all they are, but I guess they have to try and make money where they can.

    Re: Why is Linux less popular than OS X?

    It is no coincidence that the most popular Linux distribution is the one with all the $$$ behind it.

    Applies to Fedora too, seeing as it is bankrolled by Red Hat.
