Run Netflix On OpenSUSE 128

sfcrazy writes "Ironically while Netflix's infrastructure runs on Linux and Open Source technologies, the service doesn't support Linux, the platform. Netflix is available for Mac, Windows, iOS, Android and Chrome OS but not for desktop Linux. One of the reasons could be that Netflix still uses Microsoft's Silverlight which is not supported on Linux. However Linux users have managed to get it to work on their distros. Now openSUSE users can also run Netflix using Pipelight."

    Uhm, I run linux on my servers AND it's my primary computer OS. Linux has been my primary desktop for well over 10 years now. We are not a 1% user base and since we actually know a thing or two about computers we demand a proportionately smaller amount of support time. In fact, I'd argue that we as linux users are more often than not providing support to the front line phone personal by pointing them directly to the problem.

    The media industry simply refuses to allow any media play back no a device or OS that isn't completely locked down. THAT is why there is no native linux client.

We are Microsoft. Unix is irrelevant. Openness is futile. Prepare to be assimilated.
