Sunday 15th was NAB day, and everybody was waiting for some shocking announcement from Apple (which announced only a professional version of Final Cut Server), but the shocking announcement came from the other side of the wall. Microsoft announced its "flash-killer" web platform: MS Silverlight.
I've always been a fan of advanced GUI for the web, and finally we have a flash-like platform that can be developed with Visual Studio and developer oriented IDE. Flash was good but it lacked a powerful IDE as Visual Studio.
Here are some link to blog of people directly involved in the development:
and... the official web site: http://www.microsoft.com/silverlight/
I was wondering: does this name have something to do with David Silverlight, the creator of Community Credits and XML MVP from Miami?
