Silverlight 1.0 will run on Linux, a move likely prompted by the lead Mono developer creating a working version of Moonlight, an open-source version of Silverlight. It looks like .NET will be a choice for Linux users after all. Get more on this story and if it signals a change for Microsoft at Ars Technica.
"Microsoft announced yesterday the official release of Silverlight 1.0, a versatile .NET development framework that
makes it possible for developers to build web applications that incorporate rich media content and elaborate user
interfaces. Although Silverlight support was initially only planned for Windows and Mac OS X, Microsoft has
announced plans to extend full Silverlight support to the Linux operating system in collaboration with Novell."
