Moonlight get's Microsofts approval....

While we can't seem to get the Podcast onto the Zune Store, Microsoft is showing other areas of the Linux world much more love.  In this article on Linux Planet they talk about the blessing of Moonlight is part of the ever expanding deal between Novell and Microsoft. This means that you can now watch all your favorite SilverLight based shows on the internet.  I know this is supposed to exist but I have yet to see anything that wasn't flash based but it's supposed to be out there.  This will, if nothing else, help to keep the issues with IE only sites Linux and Mac users are used to from continuing as Microsoft tries to establish SilverLight as an Adobe Flash killer.  This is great to hear let's how this recent change of heart at Microsoft keeps going.  Someday maybe even an open source version of Windows. (I can dream can't I?)
