Re-Imagining Linux Platforms to Meet the Needs of Cloud Service Providers
"Another significant enhancement is that the Beta now treats
online (streaming) and local media equivalently, so you can locate
and play either type of media from the same search function.
Additionally, the search function makes it easy to locate specific
shows or titles without having to scan long lists of movie or
television show titles. Just search, select, play.
"For Windows users, the Boxee Beta’s most exciting
enhancement is the availability of — at long last — a
fully functional Netflix instant-downloads player function. Linux
users, however, remain without this capability due to Linux’s
lack of Microsoft Silverlight’s DRM support, despite progress
in the Moonlight project."
