Multimedia, AV "The immense popularity of sites like YouTube has unexpectedly turned Flash Video into one of the de facto standards for Internet video. The proliferation of sites using FLV has been a boon for remix culture, as creators made their own versions of posted videos. And thus far there has been no widespread DRM standard for Flash or Flash Video formats; indeed, most sites that use these formats simply serve standalone, unencrypted files via ordinary web servers. Now Adobe, which controls Flash and Flash Video, is trying to change that with the introduction of DRM restrictions in version 9 of its Flash Player and version 3 of its Flash Media Server software."

I seriously doubt google will use Silverlight. Google and MS are competitors, I'm sure there is nothing wrong with silverlight, but why would Google empower a direct competitor?

And when you say "they are working on it" too bad 'they' is not Microsoft. I would hate for anyone not using a MS operating system to be 1 update away from having a version of Moonlight that actually works with the current version of Silverlight.
