ScottGu published some info about Silverlight 2. In my opinion, these upgrades bring Silverlight much closer to being a serious consideration for RIA development. There have been some cool things come out but nothing quite matching anything created by other technologies. I see SL 1.0 as a “video” release. This release seems to bring the focus to application development, which is great.

Thoughts? Still afraid of it Flash Platform geeks? Is it still the devil? Is it still seen as a “ying and yang kinda thing”:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ESyzOpoNeMQ (funny video, “Phillip”:http://phillipkerman.com/blog/) or a competitor? 🙂
My opinion…it is “getting there” but isn’t quite there. I’ll review the API/upgrades and give a full review after actually touching the code. I’m HIGHLY interested though, as I’ve always been.
