The Register Compares AIR and Browserless Silverlight

Coming out of MIX last week, The Register’s Tim Anderson has posted a story on how Flash is helping to define Silverlight features and direction, and he focuses specifically on comparing Adobe AIR to Silverlight 3 running outside of the browser. This one is an interesting read.

    The inspiration from OOB actually came mostly out of the needs from SmartClient mishaps from the past. If you then trace AIR lineage to Central and where that also derived from it’s also interesting to follow the inspiration tree that way.
    I’m a massive fan of RIA technology tree’s and how they via one lense seem to impact one another but dig a little deeper and RIA really dates back to the RTF vs SVG days as well.
    Love this industry though! 🙂
