100 More Silverlight Showcases

Posted by Charles | March 4, 2008 .

We love Flex better. But doesn’t mean we should stick our heads into sand. Do you want to know how close (if ever) Silverlight is running behind Flex? I do think the RIA world is big enough to have more players and our love can spread out a bit more too.

Going over the demos is a good way to check out the competitors. Microsoft put out a good Silverlight show case gallery, in Silverlight. There are about 166 applications so far. Most of them are media rich rather than application focused. I guess catching eye balls first is Microsoft’s strategy. From what I know by playing with Silverlight, so far, the 1.1 edition is merely a Flash alike engine with limited application development features. The designer aspect of it is more stronger with Expression Blend ( think Flash Studio). You can develop a serious application like with Flex. You could with third party component library such as the one from ComponentOne, but the core is too thin.

The Silverlight 2.0 releasing this week (is it?) will change that. That’s why I start (you should too) paying great deal of attention to it.
