Default Samples don't work on Linux?

I really find it hard to believe that the samples for the book wouldn't work on Ubuntu Linux, or any other Linux, for that matter. It's really odd and ironic for the book to say that the samples will only work on Windows or MacOS.

The book doesn't say examples won't work on Linux. Are you inferring that from something? Have you tried them? They should work on Firefox on Linux just fine.

Ah, that's just an error of omission. Everything should work fine on Linux if you're using one of those browsers.
