The Vulture Does Silverlight

I love to read The Register. It has a delightfully irreverent and decidedly anti-Microsoft take on the world of IT, and covers a broad swath of topics every day. I like to think of it as “keeping me honest,” as their viewpoints are often quite different from my own, and I like to proactively fight my own biases when I can.

In any event, El Reg had an interesting article on Silverlight today, including portions of an interview with Scott Guthrie. Even though it’s not technically deep at all, I enjoyed its skeptical take on how Silverlight stands up to competition from Adobe and Google. Check it out.

About ssimagine

My name is Matthew Roche, and I am a Senior Program Manager with the SQL Server product group at Microsoft. I work on Master Data Services and Data Quality Services, and have previously worked on SQL Server Integration Services. Although I work for Microsoft and will be posting on technical topics, I want to stress that this is a personal blog, and any opinions posted here are mine and mine alone. I built my career around SQL Server and Microsoft technologies for well over a decade before I joined Microsoft as an employee, and I plan on using this blog to share my personal experience and opinions. They may well be shaped by my experience on the SQL Server team, but they’re still mine, and not that of Microsoft, disclaimer, disclaimer, etc., etc..
