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.

I think the point is that it shows you can do almost anything in a web browser and have no codec, plugin OS platform limitations.

I don't want to have to install Flash, Moonlight/Silverlight, QuickTime, Windows Media Player media codecs just to play or view stuff on the web. I think HTML 5 just makes it a lot more transparent for the user and that's on all platforms.
