    Next couple of years from what I have heard. There is talk about Netflix and Amazon instant video already experimenting with HTML 5.

    Old thread but here's some useful info, moonlight is not dead:

    http://news.mono-project.com/2014/02/25/mono-3-2-7-is-out/

    Google chrome has good support for it (in Arch's AUR repos, it's google-chrome-extension-moonlight), so if anyone interested is not afraid of having their soul stolen, just go for it. I had to install it yesterday - working great.

    Chromium may also work with that after some tweaking.

    If you get wine there is a program called wine-silverlight. I think it came with Pinguy OS, but Pinguy and LM are both Debian based which means if you find a download for Pinguy it should be compatable with LM.
