Silverlight does not run on GNU/Linux. Why? Microsoft didn't want to port it.
Novell was its excuse, as reported (with a quote from Microsoft) about a month
Moonlight is only for Novell customers. Really? Yes, watch the covenant.
Moonlight requires Mono.
The Silverlight fiasco is far from over. Microsoft makes enemies by attempting
to exclude and 'punish' its #1 rival (by its own admission).
~~ Best of wishes
