Very well, thank you! Remember when web sites REQUIRED Internet ExploDer in order to access them? Yeah, that's a foggy memory for me, too, now that it's ancient history--because *I* and other like-minded people COMPLAINED, and told those companies we wouldn't do business with them until they were accessible by Linux users. There aren't any windows-based applications I need/want/care about, so I haven't complained about software, per se, in a long time. Only recently, and as a result of reading a question here about Netflix, did I pull out my old "as long as you're not supporting Linux I won't be a customer" routine.

I spent much of yesterday watching episodes of a TV show that used to air on CBS, but is now only available on ION, which is only available in SD where I live. The full-HD episodes are available on Netflix, which sure does appear to be running natively on Linux on my Netgear NeoTV box. Netflix is also the only place outside of notmeTunes where I can get early episodes of Top Gear (UK).
How early? I see old episodes of Top Gear all the time on BBC America.

I'll leave the deprivation, hair shirts and self-flagellation to the Calvinists and rms...
