Silverlight… Cross-platform?.

by benl

Wow! Looks like I missed this somehow… Silverlight, although being touted as “cross-platform” won’t ship with Linux compatible plug-ins. Wise move Microsoft.

I can’t see the YouTube’s (especially given how Google isn’t historically one of the great adopters of MS technology) of this world adopting  your  “cross-platform”  technology? I thought Microsoft were starting to move away from these lock-in encouraging business tactics…

At least drop the “cross-platform” misnomer!
