    I'm going to install pipelight in mint to look at some places that requires Silverlight, if I install this, it is going to install some kind of wine, not the complete one, and I want to know: could some Windows virus, add or something bad like that run in my system? I say this because years ago I installed wine in manjaro and my browser was affected so that it restarted continuously. Thanks for the answers.

    Yes. See the dependencies: https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/pipelight/

    It's definitely possible.

    Thanks amarildojr, I have to install it, the other possibility is to use windows and I don't want it, in fact I have windows in one computer but I only use it when I do have to open just one site that uses silverlight, just one, if I didn't have to open that place...windows wouldn't be with me.
