Intel announced yesterday at IDF (Intel Developer Forum) support for Silverlight 3 on their Atom-based devices. This includes Intel‘s own Linux based Moblin OS. As part of this, Silverlight will become one of the technologies supported within Intel’s Atom Developer Program.
Was this a result of Microsoft trying to be nice to Intel or does Microsoft acknowledge the widespread use of Linux and wants to make Silverlight cross platform or was it to dethrone Adobe flash player from all OSes including Linux? What is the status of Moonlight? Is it going to be abandoned?
