Silverlight v1.0

Posted by Stephen Wrighton on 05 Sep 2007

Silverlight version 1.0 has been finally released. Now to find some time to play with this. Oh well.

What is Silverlight? Well, the Silverlight web page describes it as thus:
Microsoft® Silverlight™ is a cross-browser, cross-platform plug-in for delivering the next generation of .NET based media experiences and rich interactive applications for the Web. Silverlight offers a flexible programming model that supports AJAX, VB, C#, Python, and Ruby, and integrates with existing Web applications. Silverlight supports fast, cost-effective delivery of high-quality video to all major browsers running on the Mac OS or Windows.
Basically, imagine a version of Flash where you can build and utilize ASP.NET web application within it.
