Silverlight (aka WPF/E) announced

Microsoft has taken the covers off its high-def Flash competitor, Silverlight.  The browser plugin is available for Windows & Mac for IE, Safari & Firefox (but not Opera for some reason).  It’s still only the February WPF/E CTP that is available for download, this is really just a marketing name change and launch (ala Atlas becoming ASP.NET 2.0 AJAX Extensions).

Not being a flash developer or a graphic designer, there really isn’t a whole lot I could intelligently contribute to this discussion, so I’ll just point you to a whole bunch of other smart people.
