The new Microsoft at CES site is up, and it’s powered by Silverlight. There are so many projects underway now it’s hard to keep track of them all and this was a great one to see.
What’s more, you’ll be able to watch the keynote live in-page with Silverlight or via WMP/default browser. Take a look, spin the wheel in LV fashion and check out the latest news from Microsoft at CES.
Hope y’all enjoy the show – Sunday night @ 6:30pm
One response to “See Bill Gates' final CES keynote in Silverlight”
Am I the only one who thinks that these Silverlight elements in the recent Microsoft sites are still terrible? The round corners aren’t well rendered, that "wheel" is really hard to control (read: useless), you need to disable the pop-up blocker to click on those very low-res images in the wheel and so on… Other released Silerlight projects have the same design quality issues.
Wasn’t Silverlight/WPF/Blend developed to improve collaboration between designers and developers? It feels like the first projects are still done by developers only. And by the way, Silverlight still has the same disadvantages as Flash when it comes to usability: after clicking on a Silverlight element, you can’t use your browser’s shortcuts. No zooming and no shift or middle mouse button click. Oh, and yes, no deep linking.
