Silverlight 1.0 Released and Silverlight for Linux Announced

That's a big milestone for us. Scott (as usual) has all the news in his post here. There are also some cool Silverlight Halo 3 videos over here. And if you haven't already, take a look at Tafiti.

In the middle of Scott's post is the piece about Linux supprt:

"Over the last few months we've been working to enable Silverlight support on Linux, and today we are announcing a formal partnership with Novell to provide a great Silverlight implementation for Linux.  Microsoft will be delivering Silverlight Media Codecs for Linux, and Novell will be building a 100% compatible Silverlight runtime implementation called "Moonlight".

Moonlight will run on all Linux distributions, and support FireFox, Konqueror, and Opera browsers.  Moonlight will support both the JavaScript programming model available in Silverlight 1.0, as well as the full .NET programming model we will enable in Silverlight 1.1."
