    Default Moonlight Now Does GPU Acceleration

    Phoronix: Moonlight Now Does GPU Acceleration

    In the off-hours of XDS Toulouse a few of us were wondering what David Reveman has been working on lately for Novell. David was the creator of the now-defunct XGL and has worked on Compiz, Glitz, and other Linux graphics projects, but lately his work really hasn't been publicized (nor has he been present at XDS, X@FOSDEM, etc) and even other SuSE/Novell employees have been unsure what his day-to-day activities are for Novell. It turns out at least one of his recent projects has been bringing GPU acceleration to Moonlight...

    fucking Icaza got him. poor bastard.

    and, yeh, future of web doesn't seem bright with all those corporate vendor locking and monopolization, buying off big companies by bigger assholes. there is some rumors that MS wants to buy Adobe with their flash and graphic software. oh, how fucked will we be then.

    From what I've seen of MS and Adobe's products, I think MS owning Adobe would actually be an *improvement*. I'll take Silverlight over flash any day.

    Java has been dying for a long time, I don't think its coming back in a big way at this point.

    The future is in HTML5! You gotta thank Apple and Google for that one, everything has to run on the iPad, iPhone, and Android mobile devices now.

    So we'd have to rely on yet another DRM-laden binary blob with more security wholes than an old rag. Thanks, but no thanks. At least Moonlight is OSS.

    it may be oss and thats great, but is not working for what people need it and thats: netflix.

    netflix works on everything except desktop linux.

    is like having an oss flash that cant load youtube videos... what would that be good for?

    i dont see much future for this project, specially with html5.
