Scott Guthrie: Silverlight plans go beyond Ajax and Flash

Scott Guthrie, corporate vice president of Microsoft's .NET Developer Division, began talking about Silverlight 3 in November 2008. With MIX09 happening next month though, the man who will be making the keynote is beginning to talk more about Microsoft's plans for its Flash alternative. He has already mentioned that Silverlight 3 is going to a pretty major update; graphics improvements like hardware acceleration, H.264 support for video, and the ability have some 3D effects are in the works. The real challenge Microsoft is facing is keeping Silverlight as small as possible while adding major features.

Still, in an interview with Channel 9, Guthrie reveals that the software giant is hoping to allow developers and designers to do things in Silverlight that they can't do with current Web technologies. "The types of new things that you can't do with Ajax, or Flash, or really anything else inside the browser - you're really going to see that more and more this year," Guthrie said.
