silverlight for linux


How do I install moonlight (silverlight) in fedora? I can not seem to get it. Mostly the fault is mine because I am a novice at linux. All help is appreciated.

You don't need it. Just another piece of propitiatory software from MS.

Wow, you should talk to whoever is charge and tell them that you don't use Windows and refuse to use it unless they pay for it.

As suggested above try to avoid it. If you cannot and must have it, easiest would be to install openSUSE.
