    The Discussion

      So was wondering, has Silverlight 2 been fully released? Is the NBColympics.com site using the official SL2 player? Or is it another Beta release (SL 2 Beta 3?).

      Thanks!

      It's released. Go to Silverlight.net to grab the plugin and the SDK.

      This is a fantastic presentation that gives some great insights into how your design and development decisions can affect Silverlight performance.  Mike Snow has produced a nice summary of the main points on his excellent Silverlight Tips blog series, so I won't attempt to do that here, but this is a presentation you should watch if you are using Silverlight in a business environment.
