We have signed an agreement to partner with NBC Universal to build a Silverlight 2.0 based web broadcast of the 2008 Summer Olympic games. This agreement also sets MSN as the official home of the 2008 Summer Olympics.
At first I didn’t get what should have been Sam’s obvious point (he attached the Moonlight logo (in SVG format, none-the-less, which for those running IE would be unable to view… That Sam Ruby, I tell ya… always the sly one ;-)) inline to the post), something he clarified in a follow-up to my follow-up,
providing a useful service that the rest of us can benefit from
Define “us”. Does it include me?
Of course “me” links to http://www.unbuntu.com, suggesting in no uncertain terms the question,
… a Silverlight 2.0 based web broadcast of the 2008 Summer Olympic games
Or in other words, will I be able to gain access to those same streams regardless of whether I am running Silverlight on Windows or Moonlight on [choose your favorite Linux distro.]?
My assumption is yes, but as Sam points out in another follow-up to my follow-up,
it seems you are suggesting that this same content will not be available to those running Moonlight.
The announcement doesn’t say…
Anyone in the know care to clarify?
