    This seems like a really bad idea.

    Interesting, but I am not a Silverlight developer.

    Well, it seems it's not based on plugins, so that's a good thing. But performance was very bad, slow loading with a lot of CPU time, seems like they have got a lot of work to do. I do wonder how it's different from HTML5.

    It happens Github is owned by you guessed it - Microsoft. What's not so well known is Redmond's support for open source projects.
