Silverlight!

Hello to a clean, well-lit name and good riddance to the worst code name ever, “WPF/E”. Well, IceWeasel and Brady Bunch weren’t stellar either but at least they were easier to type. Try typing “WPF/E” five times quickly and you’ll see what I mean. Yes, the quotes have to be around it as well.

In case you’ve not heard, Silverlight is a cross-browser, cross-platform plugin for delivering next generation media experiences and rich interactive applications for the web. It takes some of the powerful markup goodness of XAML and marries it to the most popular file types in the world right now: html and javascript.

There is a lot of information regarding Silverlight that all went live today.
