    So with Moonlight 3.0 (netflix)

    The only thing standing in the way of being able to stream netflix with linux now is that netflix won't give any of the DRM plug-ins to devolopers to be able to do it? This is what I read on Moonlights website...

    Netflix needs to get with the program.... LOL

    I hate to be the guy to say "this thread again" but.....this again eh? It really is ashame as I know you OP. You loaded ubuntu...you love it...you love it so much you nuked windows and your proud of yourself for doing it. You went to netflix and saw it didnt work. You searched...just KNOWING that there was some sort of work around. You found out there is not and now your pissed.

    No linux does. Its the movie companies that require the DRM.

    No actually you couldn't be more wrong...... I DO stream netflix just fine through my Wii console.... so it's not an issue of "I can't get it and I am pissed" I am actually more a person that likes to know how and why things work on my computer... which is why I am extremely happy with linux...Juwst thought I would ask since it ws my understanding that Moonlight was the only reason why so I thought I would ask why here....

    Whoever came up with the phrase "There is no such thing as a stupid question" obviously never had the internet.
