Microsoft has announced Silverlight 3 and Expression 3 to help developers and designers build compelling rich Internet applications (RIAs). Microsoft's Silverlight 3 and Expression 3 combine new capabilities with simplified packaging to deliver an RIA solution to challenge market leader Adobe Systems' Flash Platform and related tools. In conjunction with Microsoft Visual Studio, Silverlight and Expression offer a highly collaborative development and design environment that simplifies the process of delivering engaging user experiences, Microsoft says. And adoption of Microsoft's platform continues to rapidly accelerate as evidenced by strong demand for Microsoft Silverlight 2, Microsoft officials said. In less than nine months since its release, more than one in three Internet devices now have Silverlight 2 installed.
