Unfortunately that dream may never be satisfied while stupid corporate 
media giants have a desire to keep things closed up. And now we have 
#%$^%& silverlight to deal with- open source cooperation my ass! Just 
got v2 running and now everything requires v3.0...

That may not affect too much in business, but any corp that has ties 
with M$ is pushed to use it., meaning desktop users are left without 
entertainment. My wife can't watch some tv sites because of that now- 
after finally! getting flash working and watching catch up tv and the 
like to come a cropper again with a new format... :(

If only people would stick to open standards...
