    Hi Adam;

    Putting up a SL video is a great idea. I just ordered your SL book today and I can’t wait to get your book on SL 1.1.

    Hello there,

    You should know that the license agreement concerning silverlight player is not shown when you access the page using a gnu/linux box, which really isn’t too much of a problem as there isn’t an player built for fruit free *nix either.  These two things make me incapable of viewing your your little video.

    I was directed to this blog by a professor of mine, because you are a person who works at Microsoft and are from ‘the area’ so she thought that you would be a good person for me t o open a line of communications with concerning software and such.

    A brief overview of your blog, which I skimmed back to the point at which you commented about Longhorn becoming Vista, has already caused me to ponder several questions.

    What is it that makes you prefer .NET over other cross-platform languages such as JAVA or Python (my favorite)?

    What are your thoughts on mono?

    Will there be a POSIX port of this Silverlight(or is there already?)?

    …if not, why not(from your point of view)?

    Thank you for your time,

The functionality extends to the support for Tablet and other forms of input, a more modern imaging and printing pipeline, accessibility and UI automation infrastructure, data driven UI and visualization, as well as the integration points for weaving the application experience into the Windows shell.
