Pipelight – Using Silverlight in Linux browsers

Up
vote
Down

Pipelight, which allows to run your favorite Silverlight application directly inside your Linux browser. The project combines the effort by Erich E. Hoover with a new browser plugin that embeds Silverlight directly in any Linux browser supporting the Netscape Plugin API.

Up
vote
Down

In terms of features, Plasma Media Center (PMC) is not yet at the level of XBMC, but it looks really nice and appears to have a lighter footprint than XBMC. The keyword here is “appears,” because when I checked the memory used for just running, without any activity, PMC uses almost twice as much memory as XBMC. read more...
