WPF/E is now Microsoft Silverlight

Well, the cat is out of the bag!  "WPF/E" now has a real name:  Microsoft Silverlight.

There's a lot of news on this announcement around the web right now.  Check out Tim Sneath's summary.  This is going to be a really exciting technology for web developers to work with.

And... kudos to the marketing folks for finally picking a name that is easy to remember and rolls off the tongue!  I was dreading the thought of having to go around constantly repeating "Windows Presentation Foundation/Everywhere".

Coming soon, a Silverlight developer community site.

  1. I tried out the tools very cool. I posted my first silverlight filmstrip demo on my site. Thanks for the inspiration.
