The buzz around Silverlight & MIX 07

Mix 07 is coming to an end... even though I didn't actually attend in Vegas I subscribed to the feed of live footage keynotes and break out sessions... which honestly felt like I was there.

Silverlight is essentially WPF/E ... a cross platform web based solution for rich UI experiences.
A tiny clr enabling all sorts of technology to run on top of it... everything from Ruby to Python, Javascript, DHTML, AJAX and more. Speaking more on the cross platform it will run in safari on the mac as well as fire fox which I love!

Now for those of you that know me also know that I don't represent the Web Dev side of development, but I must say that this technology is pulling me back to the web side of things.
Very Cool!
