When I go to:
http://www.microsoft.com/silverlight/get-started/install/default.aspx?mode=sysreq&reason=unsupportedplatform&v=2.0

I see:
Microsoft Silverlight may not be supported on your computer's hardware or operating system.

I installed this:
http://go-mono.com/moonlight/

and nothing changed. I also tried this: http://go-mono.com/moonlight-beta/

I am using firefox 3.5

Is anyone else having this problem?

Thanks,

David

Yes, it doesn't seem to be fully compatible, I can't watch itv.com for example.

I installed the free Windows 7 beta in VBox for stuff like this. Hopefully moonlight will be more compatible by the time W7 beta expires (next march)

Moonlight 2.0 is currently in beta mode. It tries to provide the same functionality as silverlight 2.0. By now MS is already offering silverlight 3.0.

So if you ask me you will never see silverlight support for linux that is on par with the one on windows. Just try to avoid this technology.
