Yeah, it's probably best to stay away from $ilverlight/Moonlight. I haven't seen too many things around that use $ilverlight. I did try the Moonlight extension to see if it worked, and not surprisingly most $ilverlight media already requires 2.0 whereas Moonlight only supports 1.0 ... and now there's gonna 3.0 and 4.0.

I'm pretty sure Flash will win out in the end anyway.
