Moonlight's M$ moonshine

When you read through the comments it's apparent that this is just M$ legal gibberish that still means you are only safe using Moonlight so long as you get it from M$-Novell.

Why bother using it when, by all accounts, it's a very poor implementation of Microsoft's dubious Silverlight, anyway?

I've been getting very good value from the non-Flash Minitube. Give that a go, instead.

Sounds good

Yeah, SilverBlight sounds like a pretty good description.

Maybe Ballmer was hoping to make tons of silver out of it, but you still don't hear anyone raving about it, even in the M$ camp. Maybe it's just as big a dud as Miguel's MoonBlight.

Serves them right, really. M$ were only trying to stiff their proprietary mates at Adobe with this SilverBlight, anyway.

There really is no honour among thieves.
