Today Microsoft made a formal annoucement at the National Association of Broadcasters about the product that has been code named “WPF/E” (or WPF Everywhere). The offical name of the product will be Silverlight and it even gets a cool logo. To quote the press release:
Silverlight is a cross-browser, cross-platform plug-in for delivering the next generation of media experiences and rich interactive applications (RIAs) for the Web.
So I don’t sound too much more like an echo chamber, I will send you over to Scott Fulton’s article on the subject (Thanks to Chris Bernard for pointing me to that article). It also looks like we will see more announcements on Silverlight at the MIX conference. Stay tuned, I am sure the product team has some more to share about the product.
