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.

Any news on whether this works with netflix streaming now? It's the only place I've ever seen silverlight in the wild. And that's also the only reason I have windows on my netbook.

One problem remains, and as you can guess, it's the codec issue. Microsoft may have paid for licenses for various codecs and may have made sure that Novell could use them too, but this of course doesn't extend towards other distributors. To solve this, distributors can negotiate directly with the owners of the codecs
