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?

Also I don't think there is anybody stopping one from adding Moonlight to Android.

The codecs required to get Moonlight to work with proprietary formats, such as MP3, VC1 and H.264, are only available from Microsoft as binary blobs. x86 or x86_64 binary blobs. AFAIK one must have a SLED license in order to obtain those codec binary blobs.

What exactly would be the point of proting Moonlight to Android, since the majority of Android installations run on ARM?
