More about Silverlight
by Jesse Liberty
The key is that with Silverlight you will, eventually, be able to create rich, media-intensive applications that will be delivered on virtually any browser, on any platform, with native performance, using most of the enormous WPF library,in managed space, writing in languages such as c#3 or VB9
The questions you have to ask are...
How soon do we get it all? Clearly this will be coming in pieces.
Once we get it all-whence ASP-NET?
Can developers keep up with all this??
The question I have to ask is: If it runs on nearly any browser, in nearly any OS, and relies on both WPF and .NET, doesn't that mean that WPF and .NET have to be available on nearly any OS?
