This all seems like amazing Microsoft PR spin, about them doing what they had to do in order to stay in the game. Wouldn't it be more accurate to say:
1) Microsoft Killed SilverLight at the end of 2012.
2) NetFlix decided they need to update their client, and decides to go with an actual standard so that they don't need to maintain one client for Windows and another for all the Linux powered devices (Roku, Android, Chrome, etc.).
3) Microsoft had to fix IE11 to actually implement the codecs other than the patent-encumbered H264 out of fear that every Netflix user will automatically switch to Chrome/FireFox if they haven't already.
What part of "Ph'nglui mglw'nafh Cthulhu R'lyeh wgah'nagl fhtagn" don't you understand?
