"Sorry, Netflix is not available in your country yet" :D however, Wiki
claims it should run on Windows in VBox. Even if it's true that it
works with wine today, you never know, if the next needed update will
still work too. I experienced that apps that run in VBox on a XP 32-bit,
service pack 2, are more reliable for the future, then apps that can be
used with wine at a moment. I would ask the hotline, if Netflix will
work on XP SP2 and then prefer VBox. I don't trust wine or other
Windows versions running on Linux, just my neurotic sense ;), because I
don't like, if something does work for a while and then gets broken in
the future. Some software is known to work quasi always on wine, but I
wouldn't trust something new, that needs special versions of wine. Even
something "stable" as wineasio IMO is useless, as soon as you take care
about something, other users might ignore.
