Microsoft recently replaced the “WPF/E” codename with the name “Silverlight”.
I don’t get it… It sounds like the opposite to me…
While “Windows Presentation Foundation Everywhere” is a name that actually conveys some sort of a meaning. “Silverlight”, on the other hand, just don’t mean a thing…
What do you think?
- I found this post by Josh who seems to agree with me.
- Joe Wilcox at Microsoft-Watch seems to disagree saying
Compared to the complex examples, Silverlight is seemingly genius and truly inspired—and it’s the right approach if Microsoft wants to go after Adobe’s Flash.
