Description

So we've been hearing about WPFE for a while now but Microsoft has just officially announced Microsoft Silverlight.  A new solution for being able to take video, interactivity, animation and make it available on Mac, Windows and many browsers.  We're talking cross-platform.  Microsoft Silverlight is all about rich media experiences.  And it's all in High Definition Video directly in your web browser.  You can have chapter points and full screen support.  There's so much more...

    Yeah, I imagine this doesn't run too hot on any non-Aero computer.  You could see even on the MacbookPro, which has a decent video card (X1600?), that the "Al Gore" game wasn't scaling very smoothly.  IIRC, the Windows stuff looked a lot smoother.

    And how about you fix the damn software so that the "Add" button to submit a reply on a 1027x768 screen is actually visible without going to full screen?  This is IE7 in Vista, BTW, with the Links toolbar visible.

    Nice.  <sarcasm> I especially like how the interviewer gives props to the OS X UI's transition animation for restoring a window toward the end. </sarcasm>

    Silverlight is awesome.  I'll be checking this out as soon as the semester is over.

    Nice to see you with your hair up for a change, T-dub. You're as beautiful as ever. Smiley
