Mono Project The Mono project has released Moonlight 2, the open source implementation of Microsoft's Silverlight. Moonlight allows Silverlight content to run on platforms that do not have an official Silverlight client, such as Linux and PowerPC Macs. Microsoft also expanded its patent agreement with Novell to cover all users of Moonlight, no matter the Linux version.

Never forget this:

With nothing but Notepad, you can write the most successful website in the world. You can compete directly with the biggest corporations with the biggest budget, regardless of your status, your class or your income.

I do not want to live in a world where somebody like Microsoft dictates what tools I use, and what OS I run them on, in order to contribute to the Internet.

So _yes_. Use Notepad if you want. Use anything _you_ want. Make your own tool if Notepad is not good enough.
