    Hello all!

    I've got a question regarding moonlight/silverlight for PowerPC-Macs. I noted that the news site I most time check went from Flash to Silverlight 2. As PowerPC macs only have silverlight 1 I'd like to ask if there is any way to install it on PPCs, I don't care if it is an über-alpha version. If there isn't a way to install on PPCs then I'd like to ask if there is any development going on.

    Regards

    I can't speak for Moonlight, but Silverlight is now Intel-only. The number of PowerPCs out there is steadily shrinking, so there isn't a lot of benefit in incurring the development overhead necessary to build the application for both architectures.
