Anyone notice you now have to enable Silverlight on MSN.com in order to view the multimedia content. Don't you love how Microsoft doesn't leave much to chance.

well i guess MS has to get people to start using silverlight some how. I'm not hearing many plans to drop Flash (at least not in the interactive advertising community)

Overall (not knowing anything about the application), what I'm seeing on Microsoft's sites really doesn't look all that bad.

Silverlight is basically the Microsoft alternative to Adobe Flex. As a Flex developer I obviously have a large bias for it, so I won't get into things here. ;)

I've never heard of either of those - I'm not sure how I missed them.
After watching the preview for Flex, it looks pretty [powerful] neat.
spork, do you have any things you've done with it you'd be willing to share?

I don't have anything on hand that I can share. Most of the work I've done has been for internal administrative applications for my university.

However, I'm currently working on a project in Flex 3 for a usability course I'm taking, and I'd be more than happy to share it once we've completed it.

If you'd like to see some demos, there are a few decent ones available on Adobe's website, although I've done some pretty unique things that you won't see there ;)

Also, Flex has nice integration with ColdFusion via RemoteObjects, and from reading the Flex 3 release notes, it looks like they've added support for PHP integration in Flex 3. Woot!

Yeah I was referring to the demo's in my earlier post :)
I may have to look into it once I get some free time.
