Getting Netflix to work on Ubuntu
I’ve always wondered by Microsoft’s dead Silverlight software still exists. I ran into it when I tried to get to one of the Colorado County GIS websites … and it never worked on my Ubuntu computers.
The product is clearly another Microsoft deadend … until I discovered Netflix uses it. Since Netflix is clogging up the Internet, and beloved by the Internet Service providers who get paid by volume, Microsoft clearly has the only client it needs – as long as everyone ignores the Linux segment of the consumer market.
To get Netflix working under Ubuntu I went to the following site and followed their recommendations. It seems to have worked.
