What a fucking mess. It's all an absolute farce. So I can use H.264 video through Moonlight but only if I download it from Novells site? If Ubuntu package it into the distro and I use Moonlight to decode the same video the MPEGLA can come after me?
Another classic 'throw the community in the shit' from Novell and their undercover Microsoft operative Miguel de Icaza. Nobody wants Mono, nobody wants Moonlight, let Microsoft fight it out on their own.
I can't decide if I want Silverlight to succeed so Adobe gets one in the ass for the years of crap Linux support and refusal to remove the single barrier to entry to Linux for a lot of people (Photoshop) or Silverlight to fail so Microsoft aren't allowed to just bully themselves into another market sector by leveraging lock-in.
