LXer: Microsoft Brings Silverlight 2 to Linux

Published at LXer:

One of the difficulties open source software faces is in implementing support where it is even possible to do so for the wide variety of codecs, formats, and other proprietary technologies that users have come to rely on. One such technology is Microsoft's Silverlight framework, which until early this year, was a no-go for Linux users. That changed in January, when the first version of the Moonlight project a collaboration between the Novell-sponsored Mono project and Microsoft, begun in 2007 was released, providing Linux users with Open Source Silverlight support. Also included, provided that Moonlight has been obtained via Novell and meets certain other conditions, is a license to Microsoft's free but closed-source Media Pack, containing codecs needed to decode audio and video streams.
