Moonlight – Silverlight for Linux

Date: 21 Sep 2009 Comments: 0

Tried to listen to stream from http://www.wlyf.com/ on Linux only to find out how much power Microsoft has. Got to have their silly plugin. Found an opensource alternative since theirs would not work even though they said it would.

Moonlight is an open source implementation of Silverlight (http://silverlight.net), primarily for Linux and other Unix/X11 based operating systems. In September of 2007, Microsoft and Novell announced a technical collaboration that includes access to Microsoft’s test suites for Silverlight and the distribution of a Media Pack for Linux users that will contain licensed media codecs for video and audio.
