Holy cow! Silverlight 2 was just released and ScottGu mentions some of the improvements coming in the next major versjon; Silverlight 3.
Next year we will ship our next major Silverlight release — Silverlight 3.
Silverlight 3 will include major media enhancements (including H.264 video support), major graphics improvements (including 3D support and GPU hardware acceleration), as well as major application development improvements (including richer data-binding support and additional controls). Note these are just a small sampling of the improvements – we have plenty of additional cool features we are going to keep up our sleeves a little longer.
Looks like Microsoft is pouring a lot of resources into Silverlight. I’d have no issues betting the farm on Silverlight.

The Sean Blog : Backstage Pass
This is a GREAT site! It just worked! No bs, no install this and that and free! Holy cow!
What does it do you say? It will copy contacts and calendar entries from one phone, via their web site, to another phone. And it lets you update your contacts/calendar online and sync it back to the phone. Excellent! I recommend this web site! Oh, and it’s a Web 2.0 site too! hehe…
Holy cow! That’s impressive!
I really, really wanna learn Silverlight! Now! Seriously! I need to dedicate time to do this.
