I dont think that Silverlight can compete with Flash/Flex/Appolo and Java. Mono is not popular in Linux world and is not ready for production so Silverlight is not cross platform.

Frank Smith

Although this is a very concise list for Silverlight. However UI aesthetics has never really determined the success of an technology. The key success factors will most likely be based on how it fits with other technologies in the stack.

If it only can be served up on IIS then adoption will be a problem.

Ok, after ready your blog I feel I know a little more about SilverLight than I did 24 hours ago. I've installed the plugin for FF running on Mac OS X (10.4.9) and looked at the demo stuff. I really didn't feel that the Fantastic Four movie trailer looked any better than when I played it in QT on the Apple Movie Trailers site. I agree that this is not a clone of Flash but could you please explain how it is suppose to compliment Flash? From my understanding you can develop stand alone Flash apps. Is VS.NET going to be released for Mac/Linux to develop SL apps from these platforms or will you only be allowed to develop from a Windows platform. I agree that if it only runs on IIS I wont be hosting the technology because I refuse to run IIS. I truly believe that if they want it to succeed its going to have to run on something besides IIS and the development environment is going to have to be cross platform as well.

So I have to give up my development platform of choice (not windoze) in order to write "cross-platform" web apps?

And it "fully supports" non-MS servers but there is a list of features that only work with MS servers and the list will grow over time?

Whew. I thought for a second there that MS was turning over a new leaf. On closer examination, it's easy to see that it's business as usual up in Redmond.

If I you want REAL cross-platform support, Flash/Apollo and Java are still the best way to go.

Silverlight is intended for Microsoft Developers that currently use Visual Studio in combination with AJAX, and some flash. Silverlight provides these developers with a "platform" to tie various technologies together under one roof, while making them browser agnostic. Sure Java has tried this in the past, but I truly believe nothing works as well as Silverlight for an all around development platform.

Silverlight is NOT intended to replace flash, AJAX, Windows Media, or ASP.net. It is intended to make developing applications that use all of these technologies easier. With the release of Silverlight, you will see hundreds of more Media Rich web applications invading the web.

Flash/Apollo is great, Java works, Flash is awesome. These will never go away! Silverlight however will give the millions of Visual Studio developers an amazing tool to develop web applications of the future!

Microsoft is definitely playing catch up here, but I really believe in this case, they have not only caught up, but surpassed anything that is currently out there.

How much Microsoft pay you?

Client Linux is irrelevant. Silverlight is what Flash wants to be in 10 years or so from now when it gets a real VM and some real languages on it.

Rob,
Could you refer me to the list of Silverlight features that only work with Microsoft server software?
If I can verify them the I can file bugs to get them fixed.
Last I checked all the Silverlight logic happens in the browser plugin. All the server is responsible for is delivering files to the client.

Fantastic Blog!

Your website brings you less profit than it did before? So may be there is a reason to update it. But saying

update the website doesn’t mean a couple of news to the main page. It means complete redesign or even making

new design for the website. And in case you need such web design in Ireland this is the right place to visit.

I am a freelance web designer with considerable skills in the area of website creation. The services I can

offer are quite competitive in comparison to those provided by the huge web design Ireland agencies.

agencies. www.internetsolutionsireland.com
