    Can you perform 3d transforms on an Xv surface? Can you run random shaders on it?

    They had a reason to reinvent Xv.

    That's not a white elephant. That's a giant wooden horse.

    As far as I can tell, Moonlight is pretty slim and lightweight. It's just a Firefox add-on that doesn't even need Mono installed. If I had to choose between Flash and Moonlight, I'd take Moonlight, no questions asked.

    I guess in a sick way that makes sense. After all, adobe is evil and incompetent, while MS is mostly just evil.

    I think its kinda funny because some of the things MS produces would be quite good if the didnt have all the DRM Crap and complete control by MS who would use that to cripple open implememtations of it.
