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.

HTML 5 needs to be a defacto standar, if moonlight and flash are not standars, why would HTML5 be considered differently?, but that's just one thing, how about the tools to build an HTML5 standar professional webpage? do you spect we use notepad? what tools are available that leverage the power og HTML5? now, the broswers, Google keeps adding new features to HTML standars, when will it be finished and stable?.

The job is not for use to waith for them, the job is for them to hurry.

Never forget this:

With nothing but Notepad, you can write the most successful website in the world. You can compete directly with the biggest corporations with the biggest budget, regardless of your status, your class or your income.

I do not want to live in a world where somebody like Microsoft dictates what tools I use, and what OS I run them on, in order to contribute to the Internet.

So _yes_. Use Notepad if you want. Use anything _you_ want. Make your own tool if Notepad is not good enough.

I'll spend my entire life to be competitive with notepad mean while others using professional tools will finish first and will get pay first, and becuase I need to eat and make a living of it, and who knows when I finish with notepad there will be another standar already.

I really wonder if you do this for a living and if you do I wonder if you do bussiness web applications and not just the classic shopping car.

Possibility != likelihood.

Also, why in the world would you want to? I doubt I've used Notepad to edit an HTML file since 1997 or '98. Using Notepad, when there are more sophisticated code/HTML editors available, is masochism on par with wearing a hair shirt.
