Why I don't use netflix?

I have been a linux user since 2005 and nothing ever made me think to switched back to windows since then.

lots of my friends use netflix and I get jealous sometimes, I wanna get a netflix account too but the sad part is, they do NOT support linux or firefox, you have to have a Windows with Internet Explorer (omg I can not even imagine me using IE again ...NEVER)

so even though I like to have netflix but I am not gonna go back to windows just to watch some movies.

there are some posts over internet like how to make moonlight work with netflix, but they simply don't work all of them eventually suggest you to buy a Xbox or something like that.

but there is a petition that you can sign online, may be netflix will listen ?'

one of the devices that work with Netflix is called roku it is cheap ,  so if you really want netflix you might want to buy that .

It's not just Netflix, Amazon does this, too.

And it's not realy their fault.

The content providers for the movies WANT that silverlight gets used becouse of DRM security stuff.

I dont think that netflix can change something about that. All in all, they are just a portal, that offers to watch movies, but they dont have content.
