Microsoft's Silverlight rich media plug-in technology for Internet applications will extend to the Intel-driven Moblin device platform early next year, Intel and Microsoft said on Wednesday.
Version 3 of Silverlight will be supported, according to Microsoft. Through Silverlight's cross-platform foundation, developers can write applications once and have them run on both Windows and Moblin devices, Intel said. Moblin is a Linux-based open-source operating system project intended for systems ranging from netbooks and handhelds to smartphones and in-car computers. It is primarily focused on the Intel Atom processor.
