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.

Which will be 24fps in a years time, double again in another year, and so on so forth.

Talk about miss the point. You’re not impressed by the fact that you didn’t have to choose the right binary for your system, download it, install it—then locate the ROM, download it, open the emulator, open the ROM and _then_ start playing.

Performance, concurrency and scalability are as important to me than it is for you, but that's another subject, it has nothing to do with standars or tools or whatever. You can have even faster result if you don't rely on standars did you even knew that?

JSNES is an extreme case that isn’t even meant to be practical right here and now. But it shows just how much browsers have improved over the last few years, and this is going to continue even faster going forward. Have some imagination, good grief. I’m going to live to regret commenting on this damn thread.

If you are looking for an old console emulator, then you most certainly know how to get it without having to suffer the pain of 12fps. Why people find more important installation, that only happens once, than normal and day to day usage?
