Moonlight is an open source implementation of Microsoft Silverlight for
Unix systems. With Moonlight you can access videos,
applications and content created for Silverlight on Linux.

View Silverlight content on Linux
Watch videos delivered with Smoothstreaming
Run Silverlight applications on Linux
