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.

Considering Moonlight is not made by microsoft, but engineered by Novell under the LGPL off of the ECMA specification, it doesn't really matter what Microsoft does or doesn't do, as Silverlight and Moonlight are two different implementations of the same standard. MS has put alot of money and man hours into making this a cross platform technology, it would be kind of odd for them to then throw that all away.

There’s an ECMA specification for Silverlight?
