  • Please stop calling Silverlight "cross-platform/device" when it's not.

    Silverlight is supported on two platforms: MS Windows and Mac.



    It is not supported on any of my devices: Fedora/Ubuntu Linux desktop, Play Station 3, Nokia Internet Tablet N800, Nokia 6120 Mobile Phone and Asus eee PC.

    Java and Flash on the other hand, runs on all of these devices, plus of course MS Windows, Mac and many more platforms.

    Actually it is cross-platform. Microsoft is working on getting it to work with Mobile phones and the iPhone. Plus Mono has created Moonlight with Microsofts help, to run on Fedora/Ubuntu Linux desktop, & Play Station 3.

    Well, if you read this, you may notice that neither Fedora/Ubuntu Linux desktops or the PS3 are blessed platforms for Moonlight. Fedora and Ubuntu are not "Downstream" and the PS3 is not a "Personal Computer". Microsoft does not want Silverlight to be cross-platform!
