A Silverlight chess board

For some time now TWIC is using my Silverlight chess board for live transmission of games. The idea of the chess board is that it is small, unobtrusive and can easily be incorporated into any existing HTML layout.
Games can now automatically be refreshed, and an arrow highlights the last move. Users can replay games with the cursor keys. More features are planned when Silverlight 2 releases.

The sad thing is that I'm almost entirely lost here on my Non-Windows-Box. Even if I get a sort of Silverlight port it will most likely be behind the M$ stuff. :(

Silverlight 2.0 is currently in beta 2, and supported on Windows and Mac OS X (Intel). Support for Linux is planned. You can find a good table of Silverlight compatibility at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Silverlight#Compatibility.
