That would be great news. I think that in order to be a success with the mainstream consumer, Chromebooks need to GIVE you a new experience AND do what people are used to. If they can't do Netflix, that's just one more chink in the armor. Whether you use it or not, I think it's a huge part of the online experience for a lot of people.
I hope Google gives people a reason TO get a Chromebook instead of reasons NOT to. (I think they're on the right track).
