We shipped Silverlight 2 last month. Over the last 4
weeks, the final release of Silverlight 2 has been downloaded and installed on
more than 100 million consumer machines. It has also recently been
published to corporate administrators via the Microsoft SMS and Microsoft
Update programs to enable them to automatically deploy across
enterprises. Over 1 in 4 computers on the Internet now have some version
of Silverlight installed.
Silverlight 2 was a major release, and delivered an
impressive set of cross-browser, cross-platform functionality for Media and
Rich Internet Application experiences. It has been great watching new
sites launch using it.
