Microsoft, apparently, is helping the folks at Mono to port Silverlight to Linux. This is good news, as the primary fear IÃ¢â¬â¢ve heard from developers is that Silverlight will be locked to Microsoft platforms and products. Microsoft has already committed to supporting Silverlight cross-browser on Windows, and has a version that runs on Mac OS X (which is even available from the Apple web site). The last step is Linux, and Microsoft is working with Novell and Mono to make this happen.
