Using HTML 5 and Javascript will not guarantee Linux support.  There is the everpresent spectre of DRM to contend with.  Anyway, it is difficult to harden Linux to prevent someone from using the debugging tools to reverse engineer the DRM.  Windows is much harder to hack in that respect,  So I don't hold out much hope of them to support Linux. (Speculation.)  Besides, the tech support for Linux would be a nightmare for any company.
