Video conferencing with a partner using HoloLens: Cool 3D for a single individual, but all the others see a douche wearing a HoloLens.
Video conferencing where all partners use HoloLens: All douches see the other douches wearing their HoloLens.

Too bad even Microsoft cannot keep the colors in sync on their own homepage.

This is probably due to the Silverlight initialization Javascript which only works on Windows for IE, Firefox, and on OS-X for Safari. Unless the Silverlight initialization Javascript is updated on the webserver which hosts the Silverlight application, which I doubt Microsoft will do, there is almost no way that this will work in Moonlight.
