Gestalt and Moonlight

I learned 'Gestalt' recently - that is browser-side Ruby/Python/XAML scripting (instead of ECMAScript) driven with jQuery and Silverlight. Is that the product only for Windows? No! Gestalt supports not only Silverlight but also Moonlight.

I try to run sample bundled with Gestalt onto the Firefox on the my openSUSE.
  1. Install Firefox add-on of moonlight from here
  2. Download the zip of Gestalt from here
  3. Uncompress the zip of Gestalt
  4. Open the XAML sample files Gestalt/samples/getting.started/03_xaml.html, Gestalt/samples/getting.started/04_animation.html and Gestalt/samples/getting.started/05_final.html
If Gestalt/samples/getting.started/03_xaml.html succeeded, Firefox renders like below:

But samples of Ruby or Python didn't work in intact. I guess it's suspicious that Moonlight on the openSUSE 11.1 is 1.0, not 2.0 even though Firefox add-on of moonlight is 2.0 beta.
