Microsoft shuts down Silverlight.net

Microsoft shuts down Silverlight.net

Just recently announced " Microsoft shuts down Silverlight.net ..."

 

See   http://www.neowin.net/news/microsoft-shuts-down-silverlightnet-wont-talk-about-future-updates

 

Maybe it's time for Xfinity (Comcast) to move to something else.

Re: Microsoft shuts down Silverlight.net

The dowload and a .com sight is available.

But anything new is not seen in the future.

 

This particular version is a year old.

 

Nothing like a mixed signal.

Just an FYI about the possible ending of Silverlight.

I have heard that CC is phasing out the use of Silverlight and is going to use the Flash platform instead.

Interesting.  Netflix also uses the silverlight plugin, I wonder how this will affect future development with respect to security on streaming.  Perhaps flash has built in the anti-piracy protocols?
