Phoronix: Moonlight 3.0 Approaches With New Features
Moonlight, the de facto open-source implementation of Microsoft's Silverlight platform for Linux that leverages Mono, is nearing its 3.0 release. Moonlight 2.0 was just released a half-year ago, but Moonlight 3.0 Preview 7 was just released and it's offering up more features...
I too am wondering who uses Moonlight/Silverlight? Personally I think it's DOA. Very few websites require it, and I have yet run into any sites myself. Also I think with the push to HTML 5, such plugins will not be needed.
It's good news...I guess. I'd much rather see webm and html5 video/audio tag crush Silverlight though. I'd also probably rather developer efforts go elsewhere, but if they enjoy and feel a need to make this, then I guess more power to them.
