Java was created in 1991. Flash was created in 1993. Designed for computers as they were then. That can certainly be felt. Insecure and heavy. Slow and faulty. And they have a monopoly in each their field. But now Silverlight is here. Finally something new and smart to rival those two old dinosaurs.
Anything they can do Silverlight can do better. Silverlight has been equipped with so much more safety, potential, resources. And intelligence.
I think WordPress should implement support for some Silverlight based media like streaming, DeepZoom, Seadragon, PhotoSynth or other new projects.
It's important for the future. If big organizations like WordPress do not support Silverlight, we will be stuck in Flash forever.
What a nightmare that'll be.
I mean: it is!! We ARE stuck with Flash and Java. Please consider making a move for a better development. Please accomodate a Silverlight feature here on WordPress. Or Two. Help lead the way out of the Flash dark ages...
If you know of other new Silverlight initiatives please give us a link in a comment below...
