Open Source Implementation for Silverlight-Moonlight

What is Moonlight ?

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.

I tested it in Linux Mint 7 and it works fine with Silverlight 1.0 website. The bad thing, it not works in Silverlight 2.0 :/
