Ridiculous. Give up a cohesive unified system with powerful and secure applications for the hodgepodge of distros and not quite ready for prime time programs?
Linux is great in the back office and on servers. One the desktop it's fragmented and hobbyist friendly without meeting average users needs.
Let the condescension and flaming begin!
Yeah. Like I'm going to use something that can't even play Netflix.
So you refuse to use Linux because it doesn't have a Microsoft (DRMed) plugin that MICROSOFT
refuses to allow Linux to have... What am I missing here? Oh yeah, the fact that there are, in fact, ways to make it work. It ain't pretty, but it can work. Ask Roku, or Google all about it.
And for what it is worth, apparently, you can use a PS2 emulator to play back the Netflix CD, and watch that way as well. No idea how well such a thing would work, but it certainly sounds entertaining.

"There is a cult of ignorance in the United States, and there always has been. The strain of anti-intellectualism has been a constant thread winding its way through our political and cultural life, nurtured by the false notion that democracy means that 'my ignorance is just as good as your knowledge.'"
