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.

You could craft professional b2b or b2c websites with just notepad. But development projects require more than the text editor. There are team integration, unit test, specs, workflow, etc, etc...

You may do all this in your text editor. You'll just spend ages doing it (or learning how to do it all) and other businesses will beat you to it.

I do agree that precise, elegant websites (and more generally softwares) have to be written by very competent programmers who use mainly knowledge and handcraft alot of things. But it has drawbacks.
