Move over Flash...Silverlight 1.0 Released!
Silverlight, Microsoft's latest rendering technology for HD video, interactive applications (and much more) has finally reached release version 1.0. I see it as a move by MS to overthrow Flash as the streaming video and 'widget' provider of choice. See http://silverlight.net/ for more details. The best part is that it has C# support on the client side! The Silverlight 1.0 Runtime can be downloaded from http://www.microsoft.com/silverlight/downloads.aspx. Expect to see a stack of video content and online games coming out with this technology.
