Want to run Netflix from your Ubuntu install? Well now you can. Sadly it’s only through WINE, but until the movie co decide to release a Linux client it’s all we have.
The guys over at iheartubuntu have patched a version of WINE to run NetFlix available through a PPA. Simply run the following code from a terminal.
sudo apt-add-repository ppa:ehoover/compholio
sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install netflix-desktop
The app starts fullscreen, but can be toggled using the universal F11.

I made the title of this post as confusing and intriguing as it possibly could be, not because I want to be awkward but simply because the name of the upcoming Fedora 19 release has really made me laugh.
