Mono Project "The Mono open-source project will create a Linux version of Silverlight by the end of year, said Miguel de Icaza, a Novell vice president and head of Mono. At the Mix '07 conference on Monday, Microsoft touted the ability to write Silverlight Web applications that run on Internet Explorer, Firefox and the Safari browser on Mac OS. Next up for Silverlight is an edition for mobile devices, including Windows Mobile. Asked about plans for Linux, Microsoft executives have been non-committal, saying that it will depend on demand. But de Icaza, who is attending Mix, was able to commit without hesitating."

Additionally, "Flash" stuff needs a proprietary product to be created. This cannot be called a "web standard". While I can create a web page using a plain text editor, "Flash" does not have this concept.


You don't have to use Flash in order to create SWF's as you are implying here. At http://osflash.org/ames you can find instructions on how to create SWF's using only open source software.
