Microsoft Most websites glossed over this, but we didn't. Silverlight, once touted as Microsoft's answer to Adobe's Flash, has been retooled from its original purpose. Microsoft is betting big on HTML5 instead, turning Silverlight into the development platform for Windows Phone, and that's it. So... Silverlight is dead - long live Silerlight?

Silverlight is not available on Linux, and is a second class citizen anywhere other than on Windows.


Silverlight for Linux is Moonlight. Officially. Microsoft officially sanctioned the port and gives them interoperability tests and ahead of time information on some subjects.

Silverlight for OSX works just as well as the Windows version. I don't get the "second class citizen" bullshit, stop making shit up.
