Silverlight is an impressive new technology, but will we regret adopting Silverlight a year from now? Neal Ford of ThoughtWorks makes the case that we will. In this show:
Platform Play - On the surface, Silverlight appears to be fairly open. Neal explains why this isn’t the case and why it is going to matter to businesses.
Testability - Neal makes the argument that Silverlight is not as testable as open-standards based technologies.
Last 10% - Neal thinks that Silverlight won’t be able to implement the last 10% of user needs. And that will leave Silverlight adopters in the lurch.
