Microsoft Silverlight

Microsoft has released Microsoft Silverlight just after few days it has released Tahiti, a screen sharing software.Looks like Microsoft is giving away its products for free these days after seeing Google's raising when it released some products from its labs last year.I think you should had understood by now that this software is also going to be a free one.But what is this Silverlight ???Lets have a look:

"Microsoft Silverlight is a cross-browser, cross-platform plug-in for delivering the next generation of media experiences and rich interactive applications (RIAs) for the Web."
Silverlight was formerly code-named " WPF/E ".Silverlight integrates with existing Web applications. Silverlight media capabilities include fast, cost-effective delivery of high-quality audio and video to all major browsers including Mozilla Firefox, Apple Safari, and Windows Internet Explorer running on the Macintosh or on Microsoft Windows. Silverlight enhance existing standards/AJAX-based applications with richer graphics and media and improve their performance and capabilities by using Silverlight.Silverlight enables Flexible ad-insertion solutions with video and animation including the ability to deliver fluid, broadcast-style video or animated advertisements without any loss of visual fidelity or motion quality.

Till June,Microsoft will be distributing its prerelease version of Silverlight.Once its release is over,then also this software is going to be provided for free unlike earlier softwares in which Microsoft normally charges after final release.Microsoft has even got some elegantly designed wallpapers for your download cart.
