Microsoft.com goes Silverlight!

May 12, 2007

This weekend, you can experience the Xbox Elite campaign in Silverlight on the Microsoft.com homepage. Go check out the Xbxo 360 Elite in all its glory. (Note: If you don’t have the Silverlight Beta installed, you’ll see a ribbon to see the site in Silverlight, note that Silverlight is in Beta).

This is only the beginning… Kudos to the Microsoft.com team on this pilot endeavor. I’m off to NY tomorrow- spend Mother’s Day with my mom (sorry honey) and then off to Streaming Media East. It should be a fun time.

    very cool Sean – do you know if there is any easy way to take the Silverlight video and embed in another page as you can with YouTube or Soapbox videos? Be great to share more widely
