The effort to bring Microsoft Silverlight to Linux is moving forward with new speed, as Microsoft and Novell have agreed to work together to make this happen. This builds on work started by Miguel de Icaza and the community within the Mono project. Mono, for those who don’t know, is an open source project designed to let applications built for the .NET environment run on multiple platforms, including Linux. Silverlight was designed by Microsoft for delivering rich internet applications on Windows and Mac. Moonlight will expand this to Linux, giving Linux user more choices for consuming Web content. Novell is demoing the latest rev of Moonlight this week at the International Broadcasting Convention in Amsterdam.
