Introducing Microsoft Silverlight

It is with tremendous pleasure that I can reveal Microsoft Silverlight: our next-generation, cross-platform, cross-browser web client runtime. Silverlight (previously codenamed “WPF/E”) is a lightweight subset of XAML for building rich media experiences on the web.

I was at a Partner event at Microsoft’s NYC office on Friday and an old friend was hinting about this, saying he was getting all these emails from Redmond, but he could not say a word because the announcement would be made at MIX07.

Silverlight supports playback of WMV files on both PC and the Mac, what is Adobe going to do?
