TechRepublic Senior Editor Mark Kaelin is curious to know if anyone is developing applications using Silverlight. He writes: "...Microsoft Silverlight is a cross-browser, cross-platform, and cross-device plug-in for delivering the next generation of .NET based media experiences and rich interactive applications for the Web. Sounds like Macromedia Flash. When I see things like 'next generation' I start to worry. Are we destined to see even more overly complicated Web pages and user interfaces?"
Read the entire post and then take his poll about Silverlight, which asks if you've installed Silverlight, if you've developed applications for Silverlight, and what you think about Silverlight.
