Dallas TechFest 2008. We caught up with Joseph Hill so that he could show us the the Mono’s team version of Microsoft Silverlight (called Moonlight). Joseph works for Novell as the product manager for the Mono Project. Mono is the open source, cross platform version of .NET. Moonlight is the open source implementation of Silverlight. Here, he’s showing us how the Mono team implemented Moonlight as a sub-set of the full Mono install… so that if you install the full Mono package, you have the ability to open (mopen) Silverlight XAML file directly, without running in the browser.
