Silverlight integrates multimedia, graphics, animation and interactivity into a single run-time environment. The technology runs on on Windows, Linux and Mac OS X and will begin appearing on mobile devices, starting with Windows Mobile 7- and Symbian-powered devices in 2010, like its more established competitor, Adobe Flash. This list highlights some of the key moves for Silverlight in 2009. Thanks to the Microsoft Silverlight Team for calling this out.
