Novell has completed a project with Microsoft to create an implementation of Silverlight for Linux systems. The product, Moonlight, will allow Linux users to view Silverlight applications, content, and video (including streaming ones) that previously only Windows and Mac users could access.
I couldn’t find any references on the Moonlight web site for which version of Silverlight it supports. I would think that it would be at least version 2, but hopefully it supports the latest software at version 3.
Silverlight is gaining momentum in the web and is becoming a serious competitor and alternative to Flash. Competition between the two will force each one to create innovative solutions and in the end, the consumers (or users) will be the one who will benefit the most.
