Silverlight goes Linux
Silverlight 1.1, a part of the .Net Framework, lets browsers run multimedia and rich applications. Silverlight, which is expected to ship this fall, had its debut in April at Microsoft’s MIX07 conference and is the company’s answer to Adobe Flash.
The Silverlight project is called Moonlight and took Mono developers 21 days to create, according to a blog post by Bruce Lowry, Novell’s director of global public relations. The Moonlight Web site says that the technology is still a few components shy of being a complete port.
