Re: Is it possible to watch Netflix "watch instantly" under XP's Firefox under Wine?
I agree with cleopete on this one. I have also never seen people posting so many detailed steps to not get something to work. The steps and the detail are then pretty pointless. Nobody has even gotten cruddy, choppy video to work - so nobody has really gotten "close". (The spinning blue thing is not "close" any more than a splash screen but nothing more is "close".)

And please people, bashing companies that don't support their products on Linux is tiresome (and really really old...and insufferably unrealistic). Linux has an infinitesimal share of the target market for most mainstream applications. Period. (And IMO for some fairly good technical and usability reasons, above and beyond just not having millions for marketing. Most humans just don't appreciate "free as in beer and speech" like "we" do, they'd rather it just work without compiling their own stuff and hacking drivers and messing with xorg.conf and writing shell scripts.)
(While I'm ranting - another completely unfounded yarn I'm sick of hearing: "Your hardware problems are caused by Linux/BSD/etc. being a more advanced OS and working your machine harder.")
