Silverlight on Linux

So, the good folks over at the Mono Project thought that Silverlight is a new technology that would make it to the market. And by "market" I mean that the clients of big software companies would pay for applications that use the technology.

That's a great thing. I'm glad to see that Mono is trying to bring "software to the masses" from places that only "big software companies" are able to bring.

Imagine if you're pitching an open source solution to a project with relatively low budget as opposed to a Microsoft only solution to the same project. Not only that SOHO companies prefer to keep a tight leash on their budget, but big companies are beginning to see the benefits of using as much open source as possible.

Keep up the good work.

Miguel de Icaza, Mono's lead developer, is saying on his web log that "It makes tons of sense for us to start looking at an implementation of Silverlight on Linux with Mono."
