    I received several mails over the last week with an interest in what was happening with Linux. Well, timely enough Miguel de Icaza just posted an update on his blog to discuss the current efforts there.

    People often ask me if we are true to supporting the Moonlight effort. The answer is yes and Miguel and team have been doing great work. We have been heads down with Silverlight 2 and as Miguel points out with the plethora of controls we have enabled, the Moonlight project can finally utilize those controls to build Silverlight RIA's or desklets (Silverlight apps that run in standalone mode).

    While Microsoft's Silverlight recently went 1.0 for Mac and Windows users, the last time we got a progress report on the version for Linux called "Moonlight" was early September. In a report by eWeek who was covering today's XML Conference in Boston, Mass, Novell's vice president of developer platforms Miguel de Icaza noted that not only is Moonlight set to release within the next six months, but they're working on getting support for all major Linux distributions. De Icaza is also quoted as saying he didn't want Moonlight to lag behind Silverlight in development, but then went on to say he expected version 2.0 of Moonlight to make its way to users six months to a year after Mac and Windows users.

     Miguel de Icaza of Novell reports, "The past 21 days have been some of the most intense hacking days that I have ever had and the same goes for my team that worked 12 to 16 hours per day every single day --including weekends-- to implement Silverlight for Linux in record time. We call this effort Moonlight."  He's on his way to demo it at ReMIX Paris right now.

    I like this quote from the mono irc, suggesting how their Linux implementation can add value to the Silverlight Airlines demo that Scott Guthrie showed: also, we should totally add snakes, time permitting

    I can vouch for the fact that Miguel didn't know anything about Silverlight's .NET support before we announced it at MIX07.
