Silverlight for Linux

After a very, very long time, the Linux Silverlight implementation is available to the public for release. Although just version 1 at this point, it’s at least something to dig into.

The project goes under the name Moonlight and the homepage is That page has a link to the actual download page for the Firefox plugin.

As it turns out, although not everything Silverlight works, some of the sites that I have used in the past on Windows machines now work fine, both video and audio, so for me, it’s a start. Now we just need to get the Netflix Silverlight player to work but that might be a little longer since I think that one uses Silverlight 2.0.

Anyway, a good start and my Ubuntu computers are now just a little more compatible with the rest of the web.

I'm just one of those guys that like well as drawing, writing, reading, coding and a whole bunch of other things I rarely have time for.
