Silverlight Now on 60% of All Internet Connected Device

In the fall of 2007, Microsoft was introducing a cross-browser, cross-platform plug-in designed to be the source of new, rich online user experiences. Fast-forward a little over two years and Silverlight is at the top of its game with uptake stronger than ever. During his keynote address at MIX10 this year, Scott Guthrie, corporate vice president, .NET Developer Platform, revealed that the vast majority of computers and devices capable of connecting to the Internet were running Silverlight at the moment.

“At the PDC last November, we announced that Silverlight was installed on 45 percent of all Internet-connected devices in the world. Today, that number is now approaching 60 percent and accelerating rapidly,” Guthrie stated.
