Microsoft launches Silverlight, their very own Flash-like platform that allows for multi-media streaming across all major browsers and operating systems.
A plugin-download, Silverlight promises to deliver high-quality videos and rich interactive applications both on Mac OS, and Windows. Also, Microsoft is reported to be working on Moonlight, a Linux-supported version of Silverlight.
With Silverlight’s launch are various partners that will use the platform to provide content such as Entertainment Tonight, HSN, and World Wrestling Entertainment.
