give you a copy of a non-free operating system.

The movie is probably available somewhere on BitTorrent; while
retrieving it in that way might violate copyright law in your locality,
it is a way to get the movie and watch it using only free software.

Well, does anyone have a legitimate copy of windows they're not using? ha!

i've emailed microsoft and told them someone gave me this computer
(true), that it didn't come with a CD restore disk, and could they mail
me a replacement, please.  That was yesterday, saturday, so i probably
won't hear anything until tomorrow monday.  i'm so smart. that was a
good movie, erasing windows entirely. crap like that comes back to bite.


i want a way to watch netflix movies online. i have a two-week free
trial that ends in 4 days, and i haven't been able to download them.  i
called  Netflix, the guy said it took Mac 9 years 11 months to be able
to access the movies online, which just now happened.  the guy said
access for gnu/Linux  machines would never happen if it took apple
nearly ten years to get concessions from Microsoft.  he said they've got
a LOT of new customers.

i did use ice and user agent swith to impersonate ie, but i got the
message that i needed to enable activex.  it seems my only option is to
get a windows or mac os and put it on my other partition. do you agree?

I definitely not agree. The best option would be __not__ to use Netflix and instead use a service that doesn't force you to use nonfree software.
