Silverlight and Yahoo!

by Ed on February 3, 2008

Wow. Someone just mentioned Silverlight in something I just read, and it got me thinking about how Microsoft would have a huge network to use it as a de facto standard if this MS/Yahoo! thing really pans out.

I have to say, after going to MIX last year, I was thoroughly impressed by Silverlight, to the point where I thought that Flash was in trouble if they can get some momentum going. Their tool set is very well done, and their ability to separate the design from the business logic to allow some parallelism is pretty amazing. In short, it’s one of the few MS technologies I think they’ve really gotten right. Of course, I haven’t used it personally, so take what I say with a grain of salt.

So if MS/Yahoo! happens, I could certainly see us starting to use Silverlight more and more. I’m not so sure that’s a bad thing.
