I just wanted a simple answer so I’d know what the program called “Silverlight” that someone loaded on my computer at the factory is. So I found a Microsoft Silverlight FAQ page, and here’s what I got:
What is Silverlight
Microsoft Silverlight is a powerful tool for creating and delivering rich Internet applications and media experiences on the Web. Silverlight 5 builds on the foundation of Silverlight 4 for building business applications and premium media experiences. Silverlight 5 introduces more than 40 new features, including dramatic video quality and performance improvements as well as features that improve developer productivity.
Oh. Can’t wait for my next media experience. . . I think. I also wonder how many old features there were. I guess if I had watched Assassin’s Bullet the other night with Silverlight it might have improved Donald Sutherland’s performance.
See how much you can get from a simple answer.
