Do users need special permissions to install printing support?
Can regular user (who can only install ClickOnce apps) print using this library?
Does it require XPS printer driver?
can printing support be used to print any else from silverlight, besides the reports you mentioned?
For example: Microsoft Report Viewer control doesn't install printing support by default. The first time somebody tries to print it asks to install and most of the user in our network are not able to do so. So we ended up converting reports to something
I am really glad that you will ban all sexually explicit content as it will make possible to shop for apps when kids and family are around and not worrying that they will see something inappropriate. Which is currently is not possible in Google apps store.
It also means I can give my phone to kids and not worry they will get somewhere they are not supposed to.
For Microsoft and App developers it will mean more people will be shoping for their apps and hopefully buying more.
When Apple put similar policy in place their app store took off.
Does somebody over here know who is going to demo VS 2010 at the upcoming Apple's World Wide DevCon? I've heard Visual Studio is going to support iPhone development, but there is no details as to whether iPhone OS will be running in virtual PC just like
Windows Phone Phone 7 does, whether developers will be able to write Objective C code in Visual Studio or may be Apple will open iPhone to Silverlight development?
It is pretty much for the same reason he won't let Adobe on the iPhone. When Apple adds new features, they are available in Objective-C (and Touch Smash ) right away, while it takes other vendors sometime to catch up, thus user experience suffers. Besides
Silverlight's visual effects are more resource intensive than native iPhone (Silvelight/WPF run slow on my desktop, not to mention iPhone).
What I see on all these phones and I don't see on iPhone is hesitations. And these sort of hesitations ruin smooth iPhone experience(which Steve Jobs doesn't like). It almost looks like iPhone UI processing is done on a completely separate thread from anything
Symbian's experience is simply unacceptable. 1 minute for a button to respond.
With that said I would also like to see Silverlight on iPhone, but more so I would like Silverlight and WPF be much faster.
Microsoft has so many resources surely they can afford putting best performance gurus to rewrite core visuals in WPF and Silverlight.
