Re: To State The Obvious...

I'd love to sign up for Netflix, but unfortunately since they don't have a native Linux client I'm not able to - I refuse to play video in a browser or using wine, since there's no guarantee that either of these methods will provide an acceptable experience and still work tomorrow (flash-based browser videos are not smooth, and wine is notoriously unreliable between updates).

Even if they did have a Linux client, my internet speed isn't fast enough to be able to stream high-quality video, so they'd need to let me download the whole movie before I start watching it. And the next time I watch it (which might be the next day), I don't want to have to download it again - data costs money. So they'd need to let me download it and re-watch it infinitely.

I won't sign up for netflix until I get a guarantee of an acceptable experience.
