Silverlight… not a bad start.

Adobe Flex has dominated pretty much anything branded or ‘wow’ over the Internet. Microsoft on the other hand has been busy on many front… the recently announced Live Mesh, server tools and hypervisor stuff, and then the often neglected piece of the puzzle and that is Silverlight.

It is ignored particularly on the web as it’s still in 2.0 beta and unless you are a Microsoft house, you probably have never seen any sites using it other than some Microsoft web property asking you to try a Silverlight version of the download site or the Windows Update prompting you to install this thing called… Silverlight.

Anyway, it’s still pretty early to say how better it is… as compared to Flex as Adobe already has a lead in that area through Flash. Only very today did I manage to have a sneak peek at what Silverlight is capable of through this Patient Journey Demonstrator.

The rest of the other demo on Silverlight showcase are no where near this… Not a bad start… but a long way to go.

Certainly with the bulk of resources behind Microsoft… Silverlight will be something… someday…

Let’s give it 6 months… after the Olympics to see the impact of the its showcase through web streaming of the games.
