KCCI goes Windows-only for weather

KCCI, the Des Moines CBS affiliate, has been touting its new all-singing, all-dancing weather web page, that one can customize.

So... I headed there to check it out, and found that I needn't have bothered; the page requires Microsoft's "Silverlight" plugin.

"Moonlight," Miguel de Icaza's attempt to clone Silverlight (but which still requires the use of Microsoft's plugin), is months late, and under a cloud of concerns about MS IP.

So... I guess KCCI can go to hell; I'll get my weather information elsewhere.
