Mono Project When Microsoft chief software architect Ray Ozzie unveiled Silverlight at MIX07, he vowed that it would be a cross-platform technology. It appears as if the software giant is making good on that pledge: SD Times has learned that some of Microsoft's top developers have provided technical guidance for a Linux implementation of Silverlight.

"At least flash is implemented in compiled code."

If you are insinuating that Silverlight isn't compiled, then that's an incorrect assumption. From my experience thusfar, Silverlight apps are pretty light on resource consumption, certainly much lighter than their Java counterparts, and the runtime is tiny...just over 1 meg.
