    Since this topic is actually rather major for Linux users (the two big things, games and Netflix are now going to be possible) I'm goign to make this topic in again in hopes that we can remain off topic or if we stray a mod doesn't close it.

    We'll see.

    WINE finally fixed a few of the critical bugs preventing this from working. Now it is.

    Right now it's a bit finicky but once these patches hit stable it should be much simpler.

    Install the custom wine with a batch file (not compatible with current versions, so use this or wait for it to stabilize)

    Steam moving to Linux, Valve devs working on drivers, and now Netflix working under WINE. Definitely a good year for Linux.

    Fix the first link?

    Edit: other links in the quote are broken.

    Is the PPA for this already available? I think I saw a comment saying it would be available today.

    I've seen posts where people stated they've used it. Haven't tried it myself, I'm back on Windows.
