    The best place to get started is probably I believe the SDK is Windows-only, even though there is a Mac runtime.

    Step 1 is to get Windows running via bootcamp, parallels, or VMWare. 8)

    The Mono Porject, which I've used a lot on my MBA for doing standard .Net development, has a silverlight clone project called Moonlight. Just how well implemented it is, and how cross-platform it is, I don't know. I do know there are still large portions of .Net that are not supported by Mono, that they have no plans to develop (Win Presentation Foundation, Win Comm. Foundation, among others).

    Mono really isn't going to cut it for Silverlight. Install Windows, get Visual Studio Express and then have a play around with it.
