OMG YES!!! I freaking love Silverlight. If I could take a date with Silverlight, I would first put on my wolves shirt and then lay on a nice coat of AXE body spray. At this point I know that the night will finish with Silverlight and myself enjoying a great night of passionate love making.



Silver....light.

I'd really rather they didn't -_-. They already have a subset of .Net for the 360 and Windows Phone 7. I understand adding it to Phone 7, because developers are lazy ^_^, but adding it to the 360 seems to bring it closer to a multipurpose device (Sony approach) rather than a single purpose gaming device. Using silverlight for games also seems a little retarded considering MS has XNA to support all three platforms.

I know it's just a bid to try and increase the popularity of silverlight. Even so, I wish they didn't.

Netflix uses their own software, I think its a Flash knockoff...

Anyways, like other posters that have said before:

Who uses silverlight, besides msn(?) on their own website?

[citation][nom]ReggieRay[/nom]MS still pushing that proprietary piece of crap. Hello MS, HTML5.[/citation]


:D Actually because it has no chance to dethrone Flash and HTML5 is coming slowly to wipe off proprietary technologies, Microsoft are pushing Silverlight for App development for Windows Phone 7. It's a kind of castrated WPF.
If it is any good I have no idea.

Silverlight is pretty easy to develop for, and work fairly well. Netflix 10+ million users seem to be a strong push that silverlight doesn't suck. Disregard all the hatred of the uneducated that don't know how to use google or wikipedia.

The problem with HTML5 is right here - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/HTML5#History
"as of January 2011 HTML5 is still at Working Draft stage" The expected completion date of the standard is 2014.
