I get that, and there is also the issue of Linux being open source as well. Be that as it may, that wasn't really my question. I want to know whose decision it was (MS or Netflix) to not fully support Linux (no DRM support for Moonlight.)
What I would really like to know is, who is Apple paying? Are they paying MS (which would amuse me to no end of they were) or are they going through Netflix?
Regardless who Apple is paying a licensing fee too, I don't buy the argument that they're getting MS DRM tech for free. If the DRM app was free, it would make absolutely no sense for Netflix to exclude Linux. That leads me to believe that MS is licensing its product to both Netflix and Apple.
Basically this question stems from a conversation I was having with a few Macophiles. The said zealots simply couldn't accept that Cuppertino would license any sort of technology coming out of Redmond.
