I'd consider it more a "the people doing the development don't like to
use Silverlight" issue. The reason doesn't really matter.

> 2) Regarding the "it doesn't work on Linux/BSD" - yes, this is indeed

Which is a very good reason, as forcing users/devs to use two operating
systems, just because, is just making for a higher barrier on entry for
everyone without benefits.

> 3) Regarding the "who has a Silverlight development environment?", it

Sure, you can download that from Microsoft, but you can equally well
download Eclipse with RAP/GWT and PHP/C++ development tools and just
setup that.

In the end it's mostly what the people that are doing all the hard work
have experience with already.
