silverlight on jaunty 64 (moonlight phase)

I have installed the silverlight plugin for linux (moonlight)
http://tirania.org/blog/archive/2009/Jan-20.html

I have downloaded the 64 version from here
http://www.go-mono.com/moonlight/
Then installed it in abrowser 3.0.5

Restarted the browser and then some codecs were installed for watching movies
Tested on this page
http://www.silverlight.net/fox/

also i watched the starting for presidential change in usa

I feel a little impaired because only 1.0 is used and we (linux users and macosx ones)
we are treated like 3rd class citizens and we have to accept proprietary formats

This is the new digital semi ghetto created by new lobby (pro microsoft it seems)
I wonder why is not in ogv (theora video) format ...
