Pipelight in Linux Lite 2.0

<< < (2/2)

Hi Valtam,

Some info on Silverlight usage:


Microsoft Silverlight is sort of popular. Primary uses are for Amazon Prime members (For TV Shows / Movies) or a regular users of Netflix. I am not sure of anything else that uses Silverlight.

While I don't use it personally (wasn't even sure what it was, had to Google it) I don't see any harm including it as an optional installation. The only possible downside - more work for LL developers/maintainers :).

I'm thinking of adding the ability to install this in 2.0 but I am unsure of it's 'popularity' and use out in the wild.
Is this something that users really need? I'm loathed to include MS technologies, but the community may demand this as a necessary.
What do you guys think? How often do windows folk use silverlight in their daily computing?

You can test it by using the following:

--- Code: ---sudo add-apt-repository ppa:pipelight/stable
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install pipelight
sudo pipelight-plugin --update

sudo pipelight-plugin --enable silverlight
--- End code ---
