I don't really care if linux users can't see my silverlight apps, and I'd assume if Microsoft was serious about silverlight anyway, that they would produce their own linux support for silverlight in the future.
Ingoring a potential user base is stupid. Linux users are a potential user base. If you develop Silverlight application, you should care.
There is still a possibility that MS will implement a Linux port, or so some blog posts *seem* to indicate. But Moonlight will still be considered interesting to many people. If it's not to you personally, who cares?
