No doubt you’ll be reading a great deal here and elsewhere about Silverlight but the question I’d like to address, or rather, start to address, is why I think this is the technology that “changes everything.”
The key is that with Silverlight you will, eventually, be able to create rich, media-intensive applications that will be delivered on virtually any browser, on any platform, with native performance, using most of the enormous WPF library,in managed space, writing in languages such as c#3 or VB9
The questions you have to ask are…
How soon do we get it all? Clearly this will be coming in pieces.
Once we get it all-whence ASP-NET?
Can developers keep up with all this??
