I had read this article long back.
When I heard of silver light from Microsoft, it made me remember this article.
As the page says would SliverLight be becoming better in the coming releases?
What is going to be Adobe's next move?
Are they going to beaf up the player and associated products in next releases?
Or they would come out with something totally new which would be the next center of attraction?
Did Adobe/Macromedia enjoy the monopoly for too long without paying much attention to improving the player by leaps and bounds? Or they had expected this move from MS?
As the article says it feels like the only way MS can keep growing in the coming years is by targetting successful products by other companies.
