The Silverlight platform is Microsoft’s answer to Adobe Flash, allowing developer to write rich media applications for the web or for computers. And Moonlight is an open source implementation of Silverlight designed to run Silverlight apps on Linux. Now the developers of Moonlight are working to port the project to Android.
That means you may be able to run some Silverlight apps on Android eventually, using a browser or maybe even a native app.
The developers showed off a demo this week at the MIX11 developer conference. The video below shows vector-based graphics running at between 37 and 55 frames per second on a Motorola XOOM tablet. The same demo can also run on smartphones such as the Google Nexus S.
